Silver City Senior Center
Site, form, climate and program in a simple fusion; this building was inexpensive to construct and is easy to maintain.
The building curves to conform with topography, deriving its color from the local rocks and soils.
Curiously, the building's "front" faces away from parking and entry - instead looking at and sheltering a lush green spring - permitting the occupants to hear the bird-life and to enjoy a respite from the harsh surrounding landscape.
