Arches National ParkOutdoor / Science / Visitor Center
Bridging inside and out to highlight an amazing geological story
An essential first destination for park visitors, the visitor center tells the story of the park’s rich geological and natural history. Large-scale recreations of rock features give the experience drama and scale while providing structure for exhibit elements. Multimedia exhibits help visitors plan their trip and make a hands-on connection with park resources before they venture out.
Working in collaboration with architects VCBO, EDX began with consultation on a building that takes advantage of impressive views of rock features outside, making the interior of the space a continuation of the exterior geology.
