Facility Master Plan
Reuben H Fleet Science Center
Attached to Balboa Park in beautiful San Diego, this science center executive team and Board asked Roto to provide a comprehensive study of facility flow, wayfinding, admissions, retail, café and theater queuing while improving accessibility and flexibility of major exhibit galleries.
- Architectural design supporting relocated entrance.
- Schematic-level design for new admissions area, wayfinding.
- New design and renderings for expanded café and retail.
- Modeling and sightline study for renovated main exhibit gallery.
Roto’s plan shows a relocated museum entrance, prominently featured adjacent to an open plaza on Balboa Park. This plan also takes advantage of the giant screen theater’s large and underutilized queuing area, converting it to a larger and more accessible retail store, and permitting the expansion of the café, also off the Balboa Park entry.
