Bank Street School Math Lab

Not much distinguished this specialized Math classroom from a normal one except that it needed to be flexible enough to be cleared for other purposes often. Fold-up tables mounted on wheeled storage units were able to combine with each other and those attached to wall units to accommodate groups of different sizes. The shelves on each cabinet could be stocked with materials chosen for specific lessons which were then returned to their storage places along the wall.

Industrial steel shelving was used for this storage to hold various learning aids such as quissinaire rods and measuring tools as well as rolls of graph paper and chalk boards at each station.

A corner loft mezzannine for individual study saved floor space for other activities.
