Phoenix: A Busy City

Convention Center

The convention center, my home for the last week, is a unique building. Perhaps my favorite architectural quality of the convention center would be the giant “garage door” which opens during the mornings. It makes the PCC very accessible and open to the world around it. It made the atmosphere of the convention extend beyond the heavy (they were pretty heavy for me) doors, and out to the streets, to fully embrace the city.

Going downstairs to the exhibit hall and registration was a complete transformation as well, seeing high ceilings and large open areas, even allowing for indoor walking between PCC buildings. Being on the first floor, PCC West was a very busy place where I saw most of my nanomaterials talks. PCC North seemed to be a bit calmer. The rooms in North seemed much larger, and more personal.

While the PCC is not the biggest convention center I’ve been in, it definitely has a lot of character to it. I think this was a great choice for MRS17 to have been held.
