Powerhouse Science Center – FWDD

Please join us as AIACV presents the Fourth Wednesday Design Dialogue (4WDD)) Tonight, October 28th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Chapter office.

This month AIA members Jason Silva and Courtney McLeod-Golden from Dreyfuss & Blackford Architects will be speaking and sharing images from the proposed Powerhouse Science Center located on Jiboom Street. This is an adaptive reuse project utilizing the Old PG&E Power Station adjacent to Lionakis’ Water Intake facility and pedestrian plaza along the banks of the Sacramento River.

The Vision:
The Powerhouse Science Center will be the premier science & space learning center serving Northern California. It will serve as a model for 21st-century experiential education in science, math, technology, engineering, and space and an exemplary green building that serves as an environmental teaching lab.

The Site Plan:
Located on the Sacramento River in the River District, the historic PG&E Power Station is the first-choice location because the Power Station’s position on the riverfront is highly visible, creating greater awareness of the Center.

The Promise:
The Powerhouse Science Center will feature generous exhibit space for current and traveling exhibits as well as a newly expanded and updated Planetarium & Challenger Learning Center. Movies, laser shows, and astronomy programs, a cafe with outdoor seating and more will be part of the Powerhouse Science Center.

This event is free. Light refreshments will be provided. The Chapter office is located at 1400 S Street, Suite 100, Sacramento, CA 95811.
