Lakemont Elementary
CTH+A has begun construction on the replacement campus for Lakemont Elementary School using a new urban prototype design with a tight footprint.  The replacement campus is being constructed on the school’s existing site and will consist of a two-story building housing administration, classrooms, art and music rooms as well as a kitchen, and multi-purpose and dining areas.  Also included are a parking lot, bus loop, new play fields and outdoor activity areas, and site utilities.  During construction, Lakemont students have relocated to the former Audubon Park Elementary School.  The new campus is expected to be ready for the start of the 2008-09 school year.  CTH+A is serving as the architect/engineer firm.  The construction management firm is Wharton-Smith, Inc.

CTH+A sponsored the first ever Asian art exhibition at the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens in Winter Park, Fla.  The installation on display through June 30 featured works from cultural East Asia.  It included two Japanese block prints by Kawase Hasui, one of the most prolific shin hanga artists of the early 20th century, 29 ivory netsuke sculptures of the 19th and 20th centuries, 25 Chinese snuff bottles and a blue and white porcelain sculpture of Quan Yin, one of the most universally beloved deities of the Buddhist tradition.
