Foot- and Cyclebridge over the Rhein in Huningue, France by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Article source: Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Two main roads, the “Hauptstrasse” in Weil am Rhein, Germany, and the “Rue de France” in Hunningue, France, are situated on the same axis. To emphasize this highly symbolic and visual connection between the two countries, the footbridge is put along the axis and not into it for the view not to be disturbed. This visual connection is enhanced by the physical one, as the design of the bridge is a response to the situation. The technical challenge is evident.

An Innovative 21st Century Student Advising Center at Columbia University

In 2007, Columbia University fundamentally redesigned their student advising philosophy and approach to enhance the overall undergraduate experience. Like many other American colleges and universities in the last 20 years, the existing faculty-centric advising system was viewed as unresponsive to the needs of the rapidly diversifying student body and the student life, financial, and post graduate planning issues students face in the 21st century.

New High-tech Classroom Building in Decatur, Georgia by Lord Aeck & Sargent

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: Lord Aeck & Sargent

A serendipitous alignment of program, a compatible historic structure and creativity, have resulted in an environmentally sensitive, high-tech classroom building that is transforming the teaching and learning experience – along with the entire campus – at Columbia Theological Seminary.

The $8.2 million building, named the Vernon S. Broyles Jr. Leadership Center, connects a 20,500-square-foot repurposed historic dormitory built in 1932 with 16,000 square feet of new construction to create what is now the seminary’s primary classroom building and outdoor learning/gathering space. The structure – contemporary yet sensitive to the historic collegiate gothic architecture of the seminary’s other buildings – has become a focal point that anchors a previously nondescript but public corner of the campus.
