Arcturis wins honor for work with St. Louis Science Center


St. Louis-based architecture firm Arcturis received an AIA Distinguished Award for the St. Louis Science Center’s GROW Pavilion.

Inspired by typical farm structures and evoking the profile of a plow or scythe, the Agriculture Pavilion is envisioned as a curvilinear structure opening to and connecting with the surrounding outdoor exhibitions where visitors can study about food production from farm to fork.

Arcturis partnered with design consultant Gyo Obata, who was the original architect of the science center. Arcturis wanted to ensure that Obata was involved on this addition as it was the first and only of its kind in decades.
