Craig Thomas探索与游客中心坐落在蜿蜒的河岸的森林和草甸之间。在广阔的怀俄明州风景中,在一片云杉、三角叶杨、山杨树林边,游客被来到一个充满平静和亲密气氛的院子。室外空间的尺度可以容纳聚会和初到的人群。屋顶倾斜向上,远离庭院,它的锯齿状边缘似乎向远处的特顿山脉致意。

游客从庭院北端的前庭进入后,来到中心大厅,大厅以特顿山脉的壮丽景色为背景,可以容纳大型集会和许多功能。一个大型混凝土+石头的壁炉是大厅的焦点。靠近大厅的其它功能空间包括书店,艺术画廊和教室。

Craig Thomas探索与游客中心保持了国家公园地区的仿古建筑的优良传统,同时其设计又是充分现代化的设施和内容。建筑,景观和介绍功能被谨慎和小心地整合起来,为游客提供了丰富的体验。

The new Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center is sited between a sagebrush meadow and a riparian forest along the Snake River. Approaching through a grove of spruce, cottonwood and aspen trees, visitors are drawn into a courtyard that provides a calm and intimate place in the vast Wyoming landscape. The proportions of this outdoor space accommodate groups of people for gatherings and orientation. The roof tilts upward and away from the courtyard, its jagged edges celebrating the peaks of the Teton Range beyond.

Entering through a vestibule at the north end of the courtyard, visitors are drawn into the ‘heart’ of the building; a large gathering hall that accommodates many functions with the magnificent view of the Teton Range as a backdrop. A large concrete and stone fireplace acts as the focal point of the room. Additional program elements including a bookstore, art gallery and classroom are located adjacent to the gathering space.

The new Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center pays homage to the strong tradition of rustic architecture in the national parks while remaining fully modern in its design, execution and interpretive mission.

The architecture, landscape and interpretive elements of the new visitor center are carefully and sensitively integrated to provide a rich experience for the visitor.
