Sustainable Federal Buildings: Mariposa Land Port of Entry, AZ

Presented by

Melissa Farling, Brian Farling & Eddie Jones, Jones Studio, Inc.

About this talk

Designed as a cultural connection, rather than a division, the Mariposa Land Port of Entry is a major expansion of Arizona’s largest commercial Port of Entry. This port processes more vehicles than the JFK and LAX airports process planes…combined! Integral to the complex function and movement of trucks, buses, cars and pedestrians, a “desert oasis” assures a secure, safe, and yet sustaining and uplifting experience. Jones Studio will discuss the design for this Platinum track project. The design concept focused on fully integrating the security and safety necessary on the project with specific design strategies such as natural daylighting, water harvesting, photovoltaics, as well as broader sustainable concepts such as creating “oasis” spaces free from stress for officers and visitors.
