Starbase - 133rd Air Wing - Building 659

Owner: Minnesota Air National Guard

Location: Saint Paul, MN

Description: This project was an extensive remodel of a warehouse like structure into a state-of-the-art educational center for grade school youth. Everything about this center is intended to stimulate young minds into the possibility that aerospace and engineering can be exciting and fun; the receptionist's desk is the stainless steel shroud of an actual jet engine, a meeting table is the wing of an actual aircraft, and the laboratories have computers built into desks, there are 3-D modeling units, wind tunnels, and custom murals abound that cover entire walls.
