A total campus modernization is creating a new home for Tyrone Middle School’s Center for Innovation and Digital Learning.
Students at Tyrone Middle School learn about artificial intelligence, virtual reality and digital simulation. But for years, they did so in an outdated campus setting. The design by Fanning Howey, in association with Rowe Architects, creates a unified campus connected by a central Scholar Street.
At the terminus of Scholar Street is a two-story Innovation Center that represents the central tenets of the Center for Innovation and Digital Learning: exploration, collaboration and critical thinking. The Innovation Center includes a research commons, technology exploration labs, a television studio and science demonstration labs that double as makerspaces. The dramatic building includes a large amount of glass curtainwall, providing Tyrone Middle School with a striking new identity within the community.
