Combining learning with sustainability, the new Evans-Harvard High Performance Music Classroom at da Vinci Arts Middle School demonstrates possibilities for energy efficiency and green building practices in a Portland Public Schools facility. Winner of the Green Investment Fund grant from the City of Portland, the building houses the music classroom and practice space for the school’s band and music programs while demonstrating the District’s ethic of conservation through energy and resource efficiency. It is designed to satisfy the highest nationally recognized green building criteria (LEED Platinum) and will excel in energy performance by using several smart passive systems.
