Architects behind the proposed Desert Discovery Center in Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve have unveiled their plans for the project.
They include a new name, Desert EDGE, and call for a smaller footprint — and smaller budget — than originally envisioned.
With me to talk about the plans is John Sather. He’s a senior partner at Swaback Partners in Scottsdale and lead architect on the project.
There will be two public meetings on the plans Tuesday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 4 to 7 p.m. at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts.
