Arcturis, celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, has received recognition from the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) as part of the 2017 AIA annual awards.
Arcturis received an AIA Distinguished Award for the St. Louis Science Center’s GROW Pavilion. Inspired by the simple elegance of typical farm structures and evoking the profile of a plow or scythe the Agriculture Pavilion is envisioned as a graceful curvilinear structure opening to and connecting with the surrounding outdoor exhibitions where visitors can study about food production from farm to fork.
Arcturis also received an AIA Distinguished Award for their Service Center project. The design embraces a minimalist aesthetic that celebrates the utilitarian nature of the program and elevates the user experience through transparency, access to natural light and connections to the outdoors.
