W Selected to Design River Learning Center

We are honored and excited to share that W Architecture & Landscape Architecture, along with a team of local firms, has been selected by the Great River Passage Conservancy and the City of St. Paul to design the River Learning Center! The River Learning Center is at Crosby Farm Regional Park in St. Paul, MN on the banks of the Mississippi River. The River Learning Center will be a mixed-use, river-focused space and National Park Service Headquarters and serve as a national gateway to the river with year-round learning and recreation experiences.

The project will include comprehensive community engagement and identification of programming and opportunities at the site. Engagement and schematic design will begin in February, and the final design and other deliverables will be done by October.

After learning W was selected, Barbara Wilks said, “Our team is so excited to get working on this once-in-a-lifetime project. We believe that well-designed places can result in more sustainable relationships between ourselves, our communities and the earth, and the River Learning Center is an incredible opportunity to do that for Saint Paul, Minnesota, and visitors from near and far.”
