Phyllis J. Washington Education Center

The new Education Center provides students and educators a state-of-the-art, sustainable facility which encourages them to explore, collaborate and utilize the most current teaching technologies and methods. A three-story atrium with a curved roof is transparent and fluid in nature, conveying life and activity to those outside while affirming the building as a lantern of learning. The atrium incorporates learning lounges on all levels that step back compelling one to look up and outward. Map circles found at main circulation intersections symbolize the ever increasing influence that one may have through education.
