'high school #9' by coop himmelb(l)au


a few lucky high school students will be returning to school in fall 2009 in a new building design by the austrian
firm of coop himmelb(l)au. the central los angeles area high school #9 for the visual and performing arts is now
complete after construction. the school will hold 1,800 students and features a central theatre that can hold
1,000 audience members. there are four classroom buildings for each of the school’s four art disciplines.
the school also features a library and cafeteria in the school’s seven total buildings. the school has a tower
on one building which features a ramp that is shaped like the number nine.
