Lincoln High School in Seattle won a Grand Prize from Learning by Design.
Located in the Wallingford neighborhood, Lincoln was built in 1907 and is Seattle’s oldest existing high school. The school thrived for seven decades, closed for 16 years when the population dwindled, and reopened as a swing site in 1997. Multiple adaptations over time left the campus in disarray. In 2015, population growth created the need for additional schools and, by extension, the restoration of this beautiful Seattle landmark. Lincoln was returned to a viable, 21st century learning facility while celebrating its 20th century roots.
