Virginia Beach Convention Center

The Virginia Beach Convention Center is the centerpiece for a new district in the city. This 19th Street corridor has become a significant open space for Virginia Beach and serves as a public piazza during street closures.

The landscape strategy for the convention center is “flexibility.” The parking, plaza, and promenade are designed as versatile spaces, which can be tented and used for a variety of functions. Special paving adds visual interest to the plaza from multiple levels. Water features invoke a sense of the tidal landscape through the use of native aquatic plantings and fish.
