“Coral Way School, built as Coral Way Elementary School in 1936, is a K-8 school located in Miami, Florida, USA… The school building was designed by August Geiger, a noted South Florida architect who worked for the Dade County School Board. The architecture is in a Mediterranean Revival style with arcaded walkways around interior courtyards resplendent with lush foliage. It was constructed under the auspices of the Works Projects Administration and completed in 1936.” (wikipedia)
The school also received numerous WPA artworks, including several mosaics of local animals and Art Deco mosaics of figures picking oranges.
