MARC 519. Samuel Teleki. “The Jubilee Center.” Springfield, Missouri. Spring 2020. Bruce Moore.
The Jubilee Center proposed for Springfield’s Meadows 20/20 Vison Area Plan will showcase a historically and culturally significant period of time for the city and region. Programmatically, it is not only a theater, but also an education center and a place to live, study and work. The theater, the educational center and the residences are connected with multiple pathways and a central courtyard extending into the site, creating a unique journey. The project layout is intended to be very public and inviting, allowing the site to be a central part of a unified parkway throughout the meadows area. The suggested movement from elevation to elevation recalls the rhythm of country music.
