Texas Exes Alumni Center in Austin by Miro Rivera Architects

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Article source: Miro Rivera Architects 

The addition and renovation of the Texas Exes Alumni Center represents a significant expansion to the 1980s facility, designed by Charles Moore and Richard Dodge. The project complements the architectural sensibilities of the existing building with an updated material sensibility on the interior while taking advantage of the unique siting of the alumni center in relation to both the Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium to the east and Shoal Creek to the west, as well as creating a strong connection to the adjacent Texas Cowboys Pavilion, also designed by Miró Rivera Architects.

Malin+Goetz Madison Avenue in New York by Messana O’Rorke

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: Messana O’Rorke

Our client, Malin+Goetz entrusted us with designing their third NYC store. Even though their visual identity is minimal with unified color-coding, they requested us to create a space that accommodates to the Upper East Side demographics by providing a traditional customer experience. Therefore it was crucial to have a layout that is clean-cut so if someone entered the store they would understand its functionality immediately. We were also focusing on using materials that are familiar for the potential customers in the neighborhood.

Madison Central Public Library in Wisconsin by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

The reconstruction of a worn, 45-year-old, 95,000 square-foot library has resulted in a completely reimagined building. A 25,000 square-foot expansion encloses the formerly open entry with a glass atrium space and adds a partial third floor. New flexible spaces and technologies recognize evolving community needs with dedicated areas for children and teens, public meeting rooms, a making space, and a high-tech media lab. The design also incorporates a number of sustainable design strategies, some of the most prominent of which include solar panels and a green roof.

Weitz Center for Creativity in Northfield, Minnesota by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

From its earliest inception, Carleton College’s Weitz Center for Creativity was imagined as much more than an arts building. While it does create much-needed new exhibit and performance spaces, the Weitz Center’s true mission is to serve as a working laboratory for creativity—not only in the arts, but across the entire curriculum. It positions the College as a national leader in arts programs by creating an environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, collaborative working skills, and cross-cultural exploration. An adaptive reuse of and addition to a former middle school, the new Weitz Center for Creativity houses the departments of studio arts, dance and theater, and cinema and media studies.

Three Rivers Park District Eastman Center in Dayt on, Minnesota by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

The design integrates site, building, and exhibit design in order to create a holistic visitor experience in the forest. A long south facing glass facade brings in light, passive solar energy, and extends the exterior paths through the building from the understory on one end to the tree canopy on the other. An active solar array and a geothermal-based heating and cooling system provide much of the energy needs. Operable windows provide ventilation and bring in the sounds and smells of the forest. Roof water feeds a pond to draw birds and animals for human observation.

Student Center Georgetown University in Washington DC by Ikon.5 architects

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Article source: Ikon.5 architects 

The New South Student Center at Georgetown University is a renovation and addition that transforms an existing mid century residence hall into a vibrant new university living room for undergraduate life. Inspired by the unique ‘Hoya Saxa’ (stones) identity of the Georgetown student body, the center creates an experience of study and casual living spaces carved out of interior and exterior stone edifices. The ‘Saxa’ living wall is a stone clad green wall that provides a natural bio-friendly character to the Great Room that overlooks the Potomac and is one of many design features that assist this project in achieving a LEED Gold certification. Inside the ‘Saxa’ living wall are 12 individual wood clad group study rooms with enhanced video display systems and writable glass partition for students to work on projects together or separately. The Riverside Terrace is an outdoor landscaped area that extends the living space of the Great Room outdoors and overlooks the Potomac.
