The vision for the new sustainable addition at the Common Ground High School is that a century from now, there will be a ceremony honoring the builders and financial contributors in New Haven who had the foresight in 2015 to make it all possible.
by Phil Kaplan of Kaplan Thompson Architects
In the Northeast, there is a proud history of the craftsman, the homebuilder, the DIY hero and heroine. They work with sturdy tools, with local materials, with real wood. They brave the mean winters, cut each stick with caution, are frugal with lumber. They measure twice, and cut once. They have done this the same way over many years and the product is consistent, steady, exactly the same as it would have been, had it been built in 1953.
There’s only one problem. We live in a very different world than we did in 1953.
