Peoria Civic Center

Peoria, Illinois, United States

A sensitive and distinctive expansion brought new vitality to the Peoria Civic Center, originally designed by esteemed architect Philip Johnson. The convention center includes a concert hall, arena and convention space in one multi-building complex. The second major expansion to the building since its opening in 1982 added valued space and amenities while honoring the original design intent. This major expansion of an urban convention center created a dramatic new street presence for the facility while significantly improving internal circulation and amenities.
