Hattiesburg, Mississippi

The use of natural light limits the need for additional lighting as sunlight freely flows into the open spaces.  The use of indigenous materials and architectural elements pay homage to the spirit of the community, thereby becoming a facility which reaches out to educate future generations about their ancestral heritage in the Piney Woods.
