Frank W. Mayborn Convention Center
Tasked with reinvigorating the existing convention center, Covey proposed practical yet impactful design solutions that give a sense of destination and arrival for the drab unassuming site. Starting with an impact along Interstate 35, large brick pillars flank the entry drive that are aesthetically replicated at the building porte cochere. Using similar materials of the current building in a modern way, help tie in the existing with the new while refreshing the entire site as a whole. Parking island and softscape were added to the sea of asphalt calming both pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
