This museum + science park, designed to address community, culture, and sustainability, was achieved in collaboration with Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman and Spurlock Landscape Architects. The proposal leverages El Paso’s distinctive, mountainous, desert location and binational identity as a jumping-off point for learning.
