Join us for a tour of the Tolleson Civic Center, led by the Project Designer, John Tran, designed by SmithGroup. Discovered through town hall meetings and charettes engaging the city’s diverse population, the Tolleson Civic Center intentionally acts as the community’s front door and living room. Functionally, it will serve as an administrative center, housing the city’s main library and senior community center. Designed to optimize natural light without heat gain, the building’s orientation and sloping roof provide practical solutions with positive aesthetic impacts. Surrounded by mountains, the building seems to spring from the earth and makes best use of the passive resources.
