Laughlin Ranch Sustainable Design Museum

Laughlin, Nevada

The client, a developer of a large subdivision, wanted to promote the concepts of sustainability as an enhancement of their development project. They requested a design for a museum of sustainability which would include a 90 person theater and 12,000 square feet of exhibit space. Innovation was a key in the concept design, including a unique multi-function sunshade to reduce the need for cooling in the Mojave Desert. The design included living machine treatment systems, planting walls in the interior and night sky cooling.
