An addition

This is part of an addition to the school in which I used to teach English literature and writing. Look closely and you'll see the art gallery on the first floor with part of the library above it.

Today in MN History: 1992- Jackpot Junction Casino, the first Indian casino in Minnesota, celebrates its anniversary (November 16–18). Originally a bingo parlor, by 1988 it had become a fully operational casino. (Historical information:


  1. c'est sympa d'avoir une belle galerie d'art dans son ecole. La nouvelle partie de l'ecole est tres moderne

    they is sympathetic to have a beautiful art gallery in its school. The new part of the school is very modern

    I did not read carefully your post, I was only looking the picture! An answer is there!
    But what is the history of this addition?

  6. A school with transparent walls? it's a good idea for the rest of schools.

    art gallery within the school, how great is that.

  8. Hi Kate, I've been swamped and haven't gotten around lately. I really enjoyed your series on F Scott Fitzgerald. This addition to the school looks like the library and gallery get lots of good natural lighting which must be nice.

    What a nice place to work and go to school!

  10. I'm going to remember Irrdento's phrase, "A school with transparent walls", it's such a nice idea. Schools sometime can seem so musty - but not this one. From the inside, one sees out into the world and from the outside one feels welcomed into the school. The designer did a nice thing here for both the school and the community.

  11. very modernist extension... mies influenced I say... ¿haw many time ago has it been done?... ¿70's?...

  12. What a great shot. You can see the art gallery inside. How wonderful to have an art gallery within a school. :)
