Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area near Las Vegas, Nevada

Designed to LEED Gold goals, the 5,000 sf. Red Rock Canyon Mojave Discovery Center is dedicated to instilling stewardship by increasing knowledge and understanding of the Mojave Desert ecosystems through a unique experiential discovery program. To emphasize the mission of teaching children respect of the desert environment, design elements of the new building are integrated and expressed to demonstrate that land and life ethic are not separable. The facility is designed to provide an immersive, hands-on experience where 5th graders from the local school district partake in interactive lessons and experiments designed to foster a lasting relationship with the environment. The building will stand as a physical example of how to exist and conserve in the desert by extending usable outdoor space, providing ample shade, harvesting rainwater, generating its own energy, and using natural and durable materials.
