NC SCHOOL OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS

DISCOVERY CENTER

Durham, North Carolina

The Discovery Center at  North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics respects the characteristics of the existing campus, shows present relevance, and establishes future precedent for this two-year, public, residential high school, a constituent of the UNC system. Its new interior and exterior spaces encourage forms of social interaction that generate a strong sense of community, identity, and social cohesiveness. Flexible spaces anticipate not only multiple uses but the constant change that accompanies future growth, changing methods of learning and teaching, and the evolution of technology itself. Ecological design features of the future campus will transform the physical environment into a teaching tool that models aspirations for a sustainable future.
