Gateway to Science Learning Center
Bismarck, North Dakota
The Gateway to Science Learning Center concept is a bold vision for the exploration of hands-on science and a state-of-the-art learning environment. Along with creating a signature architectural building design overlooking the Missouri River Valley, the conceptually planned 3-story facility integrates thoughtfully into the river bluff. It’s light footprint on top of the bluff preserves the magnificent River Corridor view for all who visit the front entry plaza.
