Having opened in 1964, Pikesville High School was one of Baltimore County’s oldest public schools. Fifty years later, it was sorely in need of upgrading to provide a comfortable learning environment for area students. As part of a larger renovation project, Pikesville High School received a facelift that modernized its entrance canopy—and completely transformed the building with a sleek, contemporary design that hinted at the advancements inside. The lofty, cutting-edge look of the entrance canopy was achieved by the use of space frames, engineered and installed by DSI Spaceframes. The space frame structure sits atop large, two-story cement block pillars and supports the roof while seamlessly blending the outside with the inside. The exposed space frame armature also visually heightens the glass-encased entryway. Today, the steel space frame entrance canopy not only serves its function of shielding students from the weather, it also continues to create a welcoming sense of arrival for Pikesville High School.
