Cornerstone Architects has created several beautiful renderings of the imagined facility for the Discovery Center ~ Great Lakes.
The facility will house offices and functional spaces for all four members of the Discovery Center, and will include a bridge-style footpath on which people can cross the highway to the waterfront.
View #1 – Looking north on M-22, you can see the Maritime Heritage Alliance’s spacious workshop on the left, the bow of a big model sailboat pointed at the Bay, and the footpath over the highway to the waterfront.
View #2 – From the rear of the building, you can see the back of the Great Lakes Children’s Museum, the parking lots with pervious paving material, and the back of the MHA workshop.
View #3 – The plaza at the rear of the building shows the Children’s Museum, more parking spaces, and the welcoming doors of the workshop.
View #4 – Looking across M-22 from the waterfront, you can see the details of the bridge-style footpath and the lighthouse-style rotunda with open-air upper decks.
