Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center- Grand Teton National Park

Derek and I have been exploring the area in and around Jackson, WY on cross-country skis, downhill skis, and hiking boots and have just fallen in love with it. Teton National Park is a 15 minute drive from our house. It has amazing cross-country and backcountry skiing, as well as an incredibly beautiful and contemporary visitor center. After a brilliant day of exploratory cross-country skiing  we were lured into the eye-catching structure. Designed by the Seattle-based  office of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the building’s tactile materials and expressive forms reflect the jagged shaped mountains to the west, while the douglas fir columns in the interior evokes the idea of a forest. This is definitely a worthwhile building and exhibit to check out!
