项目简介:
欧文斯伯勒(Owensboro)是美国肯塔基州中北部戴维斯县的县治。 它原来是肖尼(Shawnee)地区的一部分,17世纪由白人最早定居那里。 这个城市在内战时代发挥了重要的作用,随着时间的推移,直到今天,它仍然是一个重要的港口。 从20世纪三四十年代,这个城市的周围地区诞生了美国蓝草音乐。

位于俄亥俄河河畔的新会议中心的位置,以前被用作当时最受欢迎的歌手的表演的行政酒店。 为了容纳这些广泛的活动,并提供一个重要的经济发展工具,城市承诺开发一个新的会议中心,包括超过40,000平方英尺的展览空间,近3万平方英尺的会议空间和公共大堂,以及服务和支持设施。

这个两层的建筑,下层是大厅,上层是会议和宴会设施。它如河上的灯塔般,标志着这个社区的非凡野心。 展览厅和会议设施可尽揽河景,而大堂则可俯瞰着历史悠久的市中心。

坐落于新开发的河滨公园,该设施将加入一个最近完成的表演艺术中心和加大的蓝草博物馆,来纪念这个城市异乎寻常的历史。

材料产品描述. 外部的阳极氧化铝板上的垂直刷漆用的是指烟草仓的木纹。 Trahan Architects的设计总监Brad McWirther说:“为了有一个紧密平滑的外观,我们才做此选择”。我们想做一个光滑垂直的外观,它使建筑看上去像垂直面板,非常类似于谷仓的垂直木纹,当太阳照射它们时会产生垂直反射,非常类似于一些你在烟草仓看到的木纹。

Owensboro is the county seat of Daviess County in north-central Kentucky. Originally part of Shawnee territory, white settlers first arrived there in the 1700s. Over time the city played a role in the Civil War era, serving as an important river port, which continues to this day. The city’s environs gave birth to the Bluegrass sound in American music, starting in the 1930s and 40s, continuing on through today.
 
The site of the new convention center on the Ohio River bank was previously occupied by the Executive Inn which accommodated performances by many of the most popular singers at the time. To serve this wide range of activities, programs and events, as well as to provide an important economic development tool, the city undertook the development of a new convention center which includes over 40,000 sf of exhibition space, nearly 30,000 sf of meeting space and extensive public lobbies, as well as service and support facilities.
 
Organized on two levels with the halls at grade and the meeting and banquet facilities above, the complex acts as a beacon on the River, signaling the extraordinary ambitions of this community. The exhibition halls and meeting facilities are distinguished by views out to the River while the lobbies overlook the historic downtown.
 
Set in a newly developed riverside park, the facility will join a recently completed performing arts center and an expanded Bluegrass Museum honoring the city’s remarkable history of public amenities unusual in communities of this scale.
 
Product Description.The vertically brushed finishes on anodized aluminum panels on the exterior refer to woodgrain on the tobacco barns. "It was a move we chose from a finish standpoint to keep the exterior tight, taught and smooth," says Brad McWirther, Design Director at Trahan Architects. "We tried to create this smooth, vertical finish that would allow the building to feel like these vertical panels are very similar to the vertical woodgraining of the barns. When the sun hits them, there\'s this vertical reflection, very similar to some of those woodgrains that you see on the tobacco barns."
