Scope Description: The design plays refreshingly against type – where most recent convention centers isolate visitors from the cities around them, the Brown Convention Center, with its broad glass frontage on reception and registration spaces, connects the downtown area with the bustle of the gatherings taking place inside. The exhibit areas with their spaceframe construction and massive truss columns are exceptionally high and open.
