THE RENAISSANCE CENTER, DICKSON,
This 102,798 sq. ft. facility represents a dynamic new direction
in education envisioned by a non-profit organization, the
Jackson Foundation. Organized around a cone-roofed, sky-lit
rotunda, a pair of two-story long rectangular wings provide
the main mass of the structure, spreading to the north and
east with upward sloping roofs implying the wings of an airplane.
In this case, a strong desire to create a unique facility
using quality, long-lasting materials and incorporating cutting
edge, state of the art technologies was paramount. The latest
learning and instructional technology are emphasized while
marrying the arts and the sciences within a structure that
evokes an excitement for learning. Awards.
