Costa Mesa classrooms made of recycled shipping containers
The Waldorf School of Orange County last week dedicated environmentally friendly classrooms crafted from recycled shipping containers.
Waldorf, a nonprofit private school, used the containers to expand its 2350 Canyon Drive campus near Fairview Park. The additional space, according to a news release, will allow the school to serve pupils from pre-K to 12th grade.
School officials called the design "Eco Classroom Architecture." The project won the Costa Mesa Planning Commission's 2011 Costa Mesa Green Design Award. Costa Mesa Planning Commissioner Rob Dickson plans to help dedicate the building.
