Back Agua Caliente Tribal Center
The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians needed a larger facility for their Tribal functions: weddings, wakes, Tribal gatherings, Christmas parties, etc. The site is adjacent to a no longer used cemetery of archeological significance. Our design effort was guided by the functional requirements for gathering spaces, dining facilities, small group meetings, kitchen facilities and small special function rooms. But equally important was the character and feel of the facility. Without overstating the importance of the building, it also respects the communal and sacred functions that draws the Tribal members together and sustains the connection between the generations.
