Odyssey Elementary is a large public school in an area of Utah with a growing population. Created as a prototype for the Davis School District, Odyssey is a zero energy building whose design has already been copied for two other new schools, both of which are targeting zero energy. It has a unique design with four “houses” (or classroom wings) featuring generously daylit classrooms. This design contributes to the school’s energy efficiency.
Odyssey was designed around the theme “Bodies in Motion: The Animal Kingdom,” and highlights animals (including humans) as they run, jump, swim and fly. The school has flexible spaces that can be easily moved or adjusted to meet student and teacher needs and is designed to be zero energy, completely eliminating operational energy costs.
