Acoustical Design for the Grand Teton Visitor Center

Grand Teton Visitor Center

BCJ Architects - Moose, WY

This new visitor’s center has large expanses of glass to showcase the Grand Teton Mountains and surrounding habitat. Surface finishes were designed to preserve the architectural intent, visually, and to control noise and reverberation. Construction required to provide sufficient sound isolation for the theatre was also carefully considered. Recommendations also included mechanical noise and vibration control.

The building includes a gathering hall and fireplace, interpretive exhibits, reception and visitor information services, an art gallery, 50-person classroom, an extensive bookstore, administrative offices, and a 154-seat auditorium with a “glass curtain wall” that showcases the surrounding landscape.
