Heritage High School is a mock-up high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico for Native American students. Inspired by Native American culture and the traditions of New Mexico, Heritage High is designed to motivate students to become life-long learners and to help preserve the beauties of their culture. Doubling as a cultural center and classroom for people in the community, this school helps to break down cultural stereotypes as people begin to appreciate and understand the depth of Native American culture. The rich colors used in their apparel, jewelry, and textiles serve as the inspiration for the interior finishes. Symbolic motifs and patterns throughout the space are derived from Native American baskets and blankets. Heritage High School was a semester-long group project completed with four of my classmates.
