Best of New Mexico: Aperture Center
This mixed-use town center building serves as an anchor between the first neighborhoods and the commercial sectors at Mesa del Sol. The center has an iconic design feature that includes a curved fritted glass curtain wall on the north and red and white stucco and glass on its other faces. The south face features a suspended exterior grand staircase. Anticipating LEED silver certification, this is the first project completed through the Albuquerque Green Path Program.
