South Padre Island Convention Center

-A A +A
1992, Lescky, Marquart and Nesholm. 7355 Padre Blvd.

A large-scale facility with colorfully stuccoed walls recalling those of Mexican architect Luis Barragán, the building lies low on the edge of the Laguna Madre, with an airy, triangular-shaped lobby that converts into a canopied terrace as it pierces into the marshes.
