Lamb Spring Archeological Center

This project focused on developing a museum and educational center for an archeological site in Douglas County, CO. Both animal remains and evidence of ancient human activity had been found on the site.

Design work was undertaken with a partner. The studio strove to take a “comprehensive” approach to design, from large-scale site usage to small-scale assembly details. To facilitate this investigation, a 1/2″=1′ scale “slice” model was constructed.
