What better place for an art school than in the middle of the Museum District? The Glassell school is covered with shiny tiles that reflect the art around it – trees, sculptures, and architecture. The building also showcases the art within. A gallery runs through the middle of the building, topped by a long skylight which exposes the interior to natural light.
