Iditarod Elementary School

Wasilla, Alaska

Our goal on this project was to design a school filled with light in the heart of Wasilla.

An adaptation of MCG’s Machetanz Elementary prototype, the design replaces the aging and maze-like former Iditarod school. The open, connected learning environments are tailored to the community’s needs, with an open and inviting entry, connected library, and enhanced multi-function community spaces. Natural light floods the interior spaces that focus out to the main public entry.
