Straight River Northbound Safety Rest Area in Owatonna, Minnesota by Snow Kreilich Architects

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Article source: Snow Kreilich Architects

Located between the agricultural fields of southern Minnesota and the Straight River Valley along the I-35 corridor, the design team was initially struck by the transformative quality of the site. The site allows weary travelers the ability to stretch their legs and submerse themselves in a serene wooded river setting. The building, pavilions and site are structured to enhance one’s experience of this place.

FREDERICK R. WEISMAN ART MUSEUM – EXPANSION in Minnesota, Minneapolis by Gehry Partners LLP

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Article source: Gehry Partners LLP

Phase II of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum is conceived of as a natural extension of the original museum designed by Gehry Partners in 1993.

Phase II provides an additional 8,553 square feet of exhibition space on the north and east sides of the existing building.

On the southeast corner of the existing building, new gallery space is articulated as three rectangular volumes clad in the same brick as that used on the existing building. The new gallery space will provide the museum with space appropriate for the exhibition of works on paper, American art, and ceramics while animating the east side of the building that faces Coffman Memorial Plaza. These new galleries provide different scales and spatial relationships than the existing galleries, offering the museum increased flexibility in the planning of exhibitions.

The First Modern Mass Timber Office in Minneapolis by MGA | MICHAEL GREEN ARCHITECTURE

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

Article source: v2com

Designed by Vancouver based Michael Green Architecture (MGA) in conjunction with Architect-of-Record DLR Group, the seven storey office building in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighbourhood is the largest mass timber building in the United States.

When Hines approached MGA with this exciting project they envisioned T3 as a unique model of new-office building; an opportunity to offer a modern interpretation of the robust character of historic wood, brick, stone, and steel buildings with the additional benefits of state of the art amenities, environmental performance, and technical capability.

Hennepin County Walker Library in Minneapolis, Minnesota by VJAA

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Facing challenges in the form of a modest post-recession budget, the need for a quiet library sited on a bustling urban intersection, and distinct design that needed to remain sensitive to the character of Minneapolis’ Uptown neighborhood, the new Walker Library serves as a living room for a diverse, arts-oriented neighborhood. The 30,000-square-foot building lies across the street from the original Beaux Arts building that housed the library until 1981, when a gloomy, leaking subterranean library that was anything but a civic asset replaced it.

Whitetail Woods Regional Park Camper Cabins in Farmington, Minnesota by HGA

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Nestled into the hillside of a new regional park, three camper cabins riff on the idea of a tree house entered from a bridge at the crest of a hill. Built on concrete piers to minimize environmental impact, the 227-square-foot cabins with an 80-square-foot deck feature red cedar glulam chassis, cedar and pine framing, and red cedar cladding. Two full-size bunks, dining and sitting areas accommodate four individuals, with a sleeper sofa and folding seating accommodating up to two more. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors frame views of the forest.

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Article source: Snow Kreilich Architects and Ryan A+E

CHS Field is conceived first as a park and a public space, and then as a sports venue.  Working with the City of Saint Paul and the St. Paul Saints, an independent league franchise committed to providing a unique fan experience, the design team slipped a 7,000 seat ballpark into a remnant site between an interstate highway, an elevated bridge, a light rail operations facility and the historic Lower town District on the edge of the City’s business district.
