Midvale Elementary School

Project Information

Client: Canyons School District

Location: Midvale, UT

Size: 87,500 s.f.

Services: Full architectural & engineering services.


The design concept is based on depicting unique land formation in Utah to elementary school students. The Building will serve as “The Third Teacher” depicting land movement at seismic fault lines, effects due to wind, rain, and erosion. All of Utah’s five national parks are depicted subtly in the building design explaining the formations of mountains, caves and canyons. The historic school bell (manufactured in the year1905) from the original building will be restored and installed in the center of the new courtyard on a concrete pedestal. The history of Midvale City will also be depicted in certain prominent areas in the new school.
