Rosie the Riveter Visitors Center, Wong Logan Architects

AIA East Bay is pleased to announce a special tour of two rehabbed historic buildings in Richmond’s World War II Rosie the Riveter National Historic Park: The Riggers Loft and Visitors’ Center.

The Riggers Loft was constructed as part of Richmond Shipyard Number Three, one of the four shipyards constructed in Richmond between 1941 and 1942 as part of the effort to provide ships for the war effort. The Riggers Loft, which also housed the Sheet Metal Shop and Paint Shop, was one of the ancillary buildings that provided support to the prefabrication and assembly of the ships in the adjacent graving yards.
