The Water Institute of the Gulf;
P+W Architects, Associated Architect
This signature project is located on the Water Campus in Baton Rouge, LA and was designed by the team of Coleman Partners Architects and Perkins+Will. The 40,000+ sf project serves several functions on the Water Campus, including 20,000 sf of administrative office space for the Water Institute of the Gulf; exhibit spaces for the Institute and their partners, a dedicated floor for conference and meeting spaces and one level of structured parking. One of the most unique aspects of this iconic, sustainable designed building is that it is built on the unprotected batture of the Mississippi River. Not only does this site offer a commanding view of the river to the building occupants but, the design incorporates a public plaza that will allow the community to have direct access to the river’s edge.
