Robinson and Associates Architecture, Inc.
Replacement of I-10E Welcome Center
Our firm was chosen to design and produce Construction Documents for a replacement of the Welcome Center at the Alabama/ Mississippi state line on I-10 E by the Alabama Department of Transporation. The scope was to transform Alabama's image when entering the state through the surrounding grounds (landscaping, parking lots and picnic pavilions) that highlight the local architecture and to create an atomoshphere that make visitors excited to be in Alabama. The exterior contains a lighthouse element that extends into the interior of the building, letting visitors see up into the structure. The building's exterior walls are inlaid with sculptured brick that replicates the natural seascape. Access to the facility is through wide vistas and verandas to display that southern hospitality. The building's floor allows vistiors to feel as if they are in the Gulf of Mexico with native fish and sea creatures inlaid into the terrazzo.
