Montrose Elementary School, Laredo, Texas. Profiles of Significant Schools.
A profile is presented of an elementary school in which the building design was determined by the social environment and the climate--it is located in an economically depressed section of a hot, dusty city, the population of which is mainly Spanish speaking. The school provides cool, dustless classrooms and shaded outdoor space. The description emphasizes why the school was designed as it was, and how it was designed and built. Five schematics, eight photographs, and an evaluation of the school are included. (FS)
