Columbia University Center for Student Advising by Stephen Yablon Architect

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Article source: Stephen Yablon Architect

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.

Brockman Hall for Physics at Rice University, Houston, Texas by The Office of James Burnett

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: OJB

The Brockman Hall for Physics is a 111,000 SF facility housing classrooms, laboratory space, lecture halls and administrative offices for the Physics Department as well as physicists from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Driven by Rice University’s belief that some of the most important moments on campus are moments of informal discussion and debate outside of the classroom, the design of the building and landscape seeks to provide a multitude of spaces for lively and inspiring conversation.

The building and landscape reinforce the existing grid of the campus. Dramatic lighting accentuates these formal elements

The extension to the Kuchl campus was completed as a modern timber construction in September 2009, being the first university building to conform to passive house standard. The building occupants were to engage in their activities at a university location that puts the academic focus of “Timber, design and sustainability” into practice. The school′s own building was to serve as a “best practice example” in Kuchl and benefit from the positive experiences of 400 students as spokespeople.

Chapel at CREU-IL in Porto, Portugal by Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

The program consisted in the extension of a small chapel at a University Centre in Oporto. The twenty year old Centre was implanted at the end of a private garden. The existing chapel was too small for the number of students attending services and there was a wish to extend it to an area of 50m². The assumptions were as followed:

– reduced costs;
– open the space towards the garden;
– maximum comfort for users.

The main ideas flowed poetic and swiftly… Many references blended into this rare architectural work, with a theme that had always been of our interest.

Woodbury University Studio Building in Burbank, California by Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Rios Clementi Hale Studios

As the most visible building on the campus perimeter, the studio building mediates between the public view and private use of the campus. The south façade is a horizontal, large-scale gesture to passing motorists that curves and wraps around the building.  Varying patterns of concrete masonry units (CMU) compose this prominent wall.  The stacked blocks create a large-scale, changing pattern of subtle shadings as the sunlight moves across the south façade during the day.  Rios Clementi Hale Studios maintains continuity with the campus by using block colors and horizontal banding sympathetic to brick colors and patterning on existing buildings.  Functionally, the south façade filters sunlight and traffic sounds from the adjacent city streets and freeway.
