Young Oak Kim Academy – Monday Memories

Adjacent to the Wilshire Vermont Station mixed-use development is the Young Oak Kim Academy which was designed as a prototype “urban academy” on a site with access to the regional subway and bus transportation system. The main middle school structure is a 3-story steel frame building on grade with an eccentric braced frame lateral framing system. There is an adjacent 2-story gymnasium structure above one level of below grade parking that is seismically separated from the steel frame building above grade level. The gymnasium has concrete masonry unit walls with a steel framed metal deck and concrete roof that supports a playground with bleachers and potted landscaping. The main structure also has a large open roof playground area with bleachers on Level 1 adjacent to the gymnasium roof.
