Passive strategies include wood doors that can be opened to allow maximum ventilation through the central gathering space and along the porches. Glass pivot doors on the east and west can be adjusted to allow the corners to be entirely open. The cuppola on the roof provides daylight but also utilizes the negative pressure resulting from the breezes gliding over the roof, which helps draw the hot air out of the cuppola.

CONFLUENCE PARK SA N A NTO N I O , T E XA S Confluence Park is a living learning laboratory designed to inspire people to gain a greater understanding of Texas ecotypes and the impact of urban development on our watershed. The Park and Pavilion are an outdoor classroom venue where educators provide hands-on scientific environmental educational experiences. Park elements include a sitewide water catchment system, which takes advantage of the pavilions’ geometric design to collect rainwater and feed it into an underground water storage system. This reservoir is the sole source of water used in the park, with the exception of sinks and drinking fountains. The multi-purpose Education Center has a green roof providing thermal mass for passive heating and cooling. A solar array provides 100% of the energy use for the project. Located along the edge of the San Antonio River, Confluence Park is part of the country’s largest urban environmental restoration project and serves as an inviting gateway to running, biking and paddling trails.

BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, FOSSIL DISCOVERY EXHIBIT BI G BEND N AT I O N A L PA R K , T E XA S The Big Bend Fossil Discovery Exhibit is an off-grid, openair center located in the expansive Big Bend National Park. Using a combination of fossil replicas, interpretive displays and geologic diagrams, visitors develop an understanding of the correlation between the dinosaur fossils discovered in the region and the geologic formations visible from the pavilion. Because the exhibit is unstaffed, partitions are a key design factor that create an intuitive, self-guided visitor experience. The building materials — including perforated corrugated metal in a color scheme blending with the surrounding terrain to avoid disrupting views from roadways and trails— were chosen to be durable and lowmaintenance in the harsh West Texas climate. recognition 2019 AIA San Antonio Design Award 2018 American Alliance for Musuems

The structure is elevated with piers to minimize site disturbance to the site’s flora and fauna and sit quietly within the desert landscape. A solar array providing sufficient energy to the structure and a rainwater collection cistern minimize its environmental impact.

SUMMIT BECHTEL RESERVE SCOTT VISITOR CENTER G L EN JEA N , W E ST V I R G I N I A The Scott Visitor Center is located at the portal to Gateway Village. The first Summit building seen from the road, the parking dropoff leads down past a knoll of grass to the scouting grove, where twelve great, tall trees provide shade and shelter while telling a story about the twelve principles of scouting. Once past the grove, a tall, welcoming porch greets the visitors and guides them to the front door. The visitor center recalls the rugged elegance of old lodges and camp buildings. The local stone base and wood siding root the building to its place by responding to the culture, climate and craft of the region. The “dancing porch� features an undulating roof reflecting the profile of the Hills Summit. This exuberant outdoor room orients visitors to the site with real-time video. In association with BNIM and Nelson Byrd Woltz

The porch also features a cultural history of the region and the Summit property while introducing the principles of scouting with hands-on exhibits for families.

GOVERNMENT CANYON VISITOR CENTER SA N A NTO N I O , T E XA S The Visitor Center floats in a field of native grasses and restored oaks at the mouth of the canyon, forming a gateway to the 8,600-acre Government Canyon State Natural Area. The canyon’s rich ranching history is expressed in the exposed pipe structure. Located in the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone, the building demonstrates sustainable water use practices by conserving water, collecting rainwater, minimizing run-off and contaminants, and reducing the use of ground water. The program includes an exhibit hall, a Texas State Park store, classrooms, offices, an outdoor exhibit pavilion, an amphitheater and interpretive trails. recognition 2007 AIA COTE Top Ten Green Project Award 2006 AIA San Antonio Honor Award 2006 American Institute of Steel Construction IDEAS Merit Award 2006 Texas Society of Architects Design Award

HEADWATERS AT THE COMAL NEW BRA UN F E L S , T E XA S The 16-acre Klingemann Property has served as the current project site since the 1940’s. Many structures and existing buildings pads will be reused in order to reduce the carbon footprint and restore as much of the property to its natural state. A major spring head will be un-capped, cultivating riparian zones and restoring habitat for native species in and around the spring. The visitor’s center will include demonstration areas for water conservation techniques and a trail that meanders through the site, showcasing several different native ecologies. The multi-purpose space, auditorium and conference center will host NBU’s large annual events, as well as smaller community gatherings. In association with Ten Eyck Landscape Architects


Located on a 100-acre preserve in the Texas Hill Country, the Lende Learning Center demonstrates the nonprofit’s mission to promote good stewardship of land and wildlife. The buildings tuck carefully amongst the dense stands of Live Oak trees to capture views, provide shade and create spaces to fit program elements. The learning center includes a multi-purpose auditorium, exhibit space, a reference library, a GIS lab, a technology center and a wet-lab classroom.


This eco-tourism headquarters is located in the lower Rio Grande Valley, one of the richest bird habitats in the world. On the major migratory pathway for most North American species, the area is a primary destination for birding enthusiasts. The design approach was to do more with less. The architecture learned from the regional vernacular, responding to the harsh climate and minimizing disturbance of the existing habitat. The building creates a gateway between disturbed agricultural land and a 1,700-acre native habitat preserve.


The vision for the Energy Partners Innovation Center — EPIcenter — represents San Antonio’s new think tank that unites entrepreneurs, technologists and the local community to incubate creative ideas towards fostering a brighter energy future.
