Teton Geo Center – Museum & Discovery Hub
Located in Driggs, Idaho – the “quiet” side of the Teton Mountains — the Teton Geo Center represents a new concept in place-based visitor centers.
“Geo” or Geotourism is National Geographic’s “best practice” tourism model. It requires sustaining (or even enhancing) the character of a place, including its culture, environment and heritage and the well-being of its residents.
This is one of the first visitor centers in the world to be designed from the ground up with these tenets as guiding principles. Studio Tectonic provided the design and content development (including writing) for approximately 3,000 square feet of space: the public centerpiece of the City of Driggs municipal building. Architectural design was provided by Plan One Architects.
