Mesa, AZ

with Martha Schwartz Partners

Ryan Associates consulted with Martha Schwartz Partners and Boora Architects to develop the master plan and assist in the construction administration of the Arts Center in Mesa, AZ.

This award-winning project combined diverse materials to a stunning result. According to Martha Schwartz, it is “a ‘geode’ for the city, a central framework with defined solid exterior, containing a magical gem as its inner space.” It has given the city a sustainable, central axis and a destination for both residents and visitors.
