The Crestwood School is one of many works by Chris Risher in his hometown, Meridian, Mississippi. Chris Risher studied architecture at the Auburn Univeristy (then known as Alabama Polytechnic Institute) along side Paul Rudolph in 1940. The school’s prominent modern elements are the strong horizontal lines, and simple massing. Risher uses different colored brick to further distinguish the massing of the building. The detailing and proportioning of the windows are another distinctive feature of modern architecture and Chris Risher’s work.
