Naperville School District 203 and the community got its first look this week at architectural renderings showing how the exterior of Naperville Central High School will appear when an $87 million renovation project is completed in December 2011.
Susan Crotty, school board vice president, said she's concerned that the modern look that's heavy on steel and glass will clash with existing architecture predominent in downtown Naperville, namely, some of the older historic structures that lend Naperville its charm.
The Sun Wednesday printed a color illustration showing the new look, and a gallery of additional images can be viewed at napersun.com. (Some images show the district's planned Early Childhood Center.)
What do you think of the new look? What do you think of Crotty's concerns that the modern look will clash with historic features downtown? Now that these renderings are out there, how excited are you about the Central renovation project, which voters made possible when they approved a tax-increase referendum?
