The unique challenge of this project was designing an enclosure around the fixed position of a paleontological treasure which was to remain in the earth as it was found. The structure needed to provide a large clear span of space to enclose the dinosaur tracks, with no interior walls or columns, and have at least 15 feet vertical height to fit a backhoe in. The structure is an architecturally significant enclosure with a simple interior program. It provides environmental controls to preserve the tracks, space for group presentations, and a souvenir shop.
