LBJ Wildflower Center Admissions Kiosk

  • Institutional
  • Austin, Texas
  • Inspired by greenhouses at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, the admissions building serves as a “lighthouse” to mark the entrance for visitors predominantly arriving by automobile. Built mostly off-site, the building rests lightly on the ground and wears sustainability on its sleeve. Condensate water is collected to irrigate the green roof and green wall. The building’s finishes—locally sourced cypress, renewable cork flooring, low-VOC paints and adhesives, formaldehyde-free plywood and recycled-denim insulation—complement the Wildflower Center’s mission. Because substantial daylighting and natural ventilation keep energy use low, 67 percent of the building’s annual energy needs are provided by the solar photovoltaic array that also functions as a shade awning at the visitor transaction windows.
