bristlecone convention center

White Pine County Board of Tourism and Recreation

Ely, Nevada

This exterior facelift to the County’s only existing convention facility is meant to instill a connection to the area and be a source of community pride. Copper is applied in a variety of horizontal bands on the facade that are inspired by the linear striations in surrounding Nevada rock formations. 
“A convention center represents the community in which it is located.  All of the concepts we explored were inspired by the surrounding natural environment, specifically the high desert context.”

–Thomas Oakley Bath
