The Metworks Building – Access Creative College

The Metworks building in London was first constructed in 2006 and was recently renovated from an old accommodation space into a cutting-edge creative college. The old, outdated building is now home to one of the largest creative colleges for young adults in the United Kingdom. The college is spread across eight campuses throughout the UK, allows students to explore their creative side, and offers courses in eSports, games, media, music, and computing. Banker Wire Contact One collaborated closely with Amron Architectural, Banker Wire’s representative in the UK, and installed our L-62 woven wire mesh panels into frames and powder coated in traffic red to give a bold, bright, and eye-catching aesthetic. This collective effort contr... More

DCHS Academic

SDG Architecture, LLC was given the opportunity to create a new campus masterplan for Desert Christian High School, in Tucson, Az. It included a new 9 acre parcel to its north boundary. This property was formerly a city utility vehicle area, with mostly metal garage buildings and almost completely paved. With the purchase, Desert Christian could envision a larger campus with more amenities. However, the sequence of the new construction would hamper existing classrooms located in old modular buildings past their usefulness.  Caption Caption A new set of classrooms needed to be constructed within the existing footprint of the campus, and the location that best provided that was their old outdoor annex. Formerly a covered tenni... More

10 school buildings with special brick facades

In an interview with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), it was proposed that good school building design should eliminate “cramped spaces, lack of natural light, and bad acoustics.” Moreover, “school buildings should relate to their surrounding community, each offering its unique set of challenges and opportunities” (Pisanu, 2018). Brick is one particularly solid building material — both traditional and contemporary, it is extremely practical and durable. The key benefits of using brick in architecture include its resistance to the elements, non-combustibility, long life, and recyclability. Available in numerous colors and textures, brick has many aesthetic qualities. The use of brickwork in sc... More

Welcome to the Stage!

Kjellander Sjöberg, together with Henning Larsen, formed one of the seven teams selected to participate in the architecture competition for the Stockholm University of Arts’ (SKH) new building in the Slakthusområdet district. The proposal titled ‘Place on stage!’ is based on three objectives: an artistic epicenter, an open invitation, a destination and a node. The vision was to create a building where the SKH and the city meet, where backstage becomes front of house, and where the artistic development process is positioned in a constructive and ever-changing dialogue with the society, the surroundings and people of various backgrounds and life situations.Artistic epicenterThe new performing arts school invites f...

Vibrant vistas and seamless edges define this pre-primary school in Gokak, India

Built on a triangular-shaped piece of land in an existing educational campus in Gokak, Shreyas Patil Architects design the new Sanskruti pre-primary school as a delightful manifestation of colourful volumes and blurred edges. Atik Bheda Consciously planned, keeping in mind the warm climate of Gokak, the school sits on the northeast part of the site such that the classroom openings are prevented from the southern glare while the ancillary functions like corridors, staircases, activity areas and admin rooms face the south, serving as a buffer between the learning spaces and the vehicular road.  Atik Bheda The harmonious composition of the blocks creates a definitive and imposing architectural volume. The juxtaposi... More

The House of Astronomy

The cornerstone for the renewed interest in astronomy in Germany was laid in the early 1960s. One of the reasons was the establishment of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in the Chilean Atacama Desert. Many German research institutes were involved in this project. What began as the dream of leading European astronomers is now one of the most successful research institutes worldwide. Several Max Planck Institutes focusing on astronomy were set up at the same time. The Centre for Astronomy Education and Outreach in Heidelberg is considered the German hub for the work of the ESO. In October 2012, together with the employees of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, the centre celebrated the 50th anniversary of the charter being signed.... More

The Forum

The Forum was conceived in 2004 by John Gaunt, Dean the University of Kansas School of Architecture, Design & Planning from 1995 to 2015. Located on historic Jayhawk Boulevard, the addition to School of Architecture at Marvin Hall addresses the school’s critical need for an auditorium for lecture courses and guest speakers, while also providing a separate breakout jury space for student reviews and presentations. In this way, students of the School of Architecture will no longer be required to trek across campus to attend their classes, but rather, will attend classes in a building that exemplifies their studies on emerging technologies, passive design strategies, and energy-efficient mechanical systems. What was the old Jury Room... More
