From the architect. Within the School of Arts is red conch music and dance theater on the first floor and exhibit space located on the second floor. The connection between these two horizontal planes is clearly the highlight of the interior. In an almost amoeba like form, the stairs transport you from the lobby to the exhibition space above.

Against a white and glass canvas the balanced swirl of color adds just enough interest for a unique entrance space. The lobby space houses ticketing booths, lounge, and an area for evening of artistic representation.

The intersection between the building and the ground is highlighted by the red ribbon of color enveloping the base of the exterior. A golden perforated skin rests just above allowing natural light to penetrate the exhibition space where needed.

The program required a single volume space and the architects efficient design resulted with not just an ascetically pleasing building but also additional benefits of finical saving and preservation of materials.

the landscape architect of that campus should be fired and/or burned at the stake.

Like many new buildings today, the Facade is too trendy and will date quick. Other than that it is still a interestingroject. Very impressive staircase - nice to see something fresh!

up_today_arch · November 09, 2010

Staircase is very nice... It might be idea for entire building...

g.n. · November 09, 2010

Congratulations. It is interesting because it looks French (not very much but I can feel it looking at the object). In our times of rose horses even bit of country like character looks cool.

NOTHING NEW. Herzog and de Meuron - De Young Museum..

Josh · November 09, 2010 01:51 PM

The DeYoung handles the skin in a very different way. This one is more reminiscent of the Caixa Forum in Madrid.

However, this skin seems to be purely compositional versus performative and I feel it would have been better if some of the performative and phenomenological aspects of the skin were considered.

The staircase is pretty amazing. Great craft and has an element of play to it.

bpv · November 09, 2010 01:05 PM

I see the similarities but this is still pretty cool

come on man, the staircase is wicked!
