HINMAN RESEARCH BUILDING in Atlanta, Georgia by NADAAA

Article source: NADAAA 

During the middle of the last century, the College of Architecture at Georgia Tech was guided by the work and pedagogy of architect Paul M. Heffernan (director, 1956-75), who contributed to the establishment of a modern discourse based on Bauhaus-influenced functionalism. Heffernan also exerted a significant impact on the campus at-large, designing several modern buildings during the 1940s and 50s that constitute an enclave he labeled the “academic village.” The Hinman Research Building (1939) was the first of these to be built; it received major additions and renovations throughout the last century to accommodate changing needs.

Canopy is something of a buzz word at the moment and like any buzz word is rather over used, popular because it refers to a certain notion of nature that harks back to the earth’s beginning. Yet despite this over use, this is exactly what comes to mind when visiting Tectoniques’ project in Givors, a town close to the city of Lyon.
