Bryan Justice Center (Merit)

Bryan, Texas

ARCHITECT’S STATEMENT

0The Bryan Justice Center is part of a City of Bryan master plan intended to help revitalize the downtown area by using the precepts of ‘New Urbanism’, which have been codified and adopted by the City. One of the goals for the City was to reaffirm the nature of the historic downtown in both material selection and building location in relation to the adjacent streetscapes, but to do so in a way that did not slavishly replicate the appearance of the “old” buildings. This was accomplished by blending historic materials, brick and stone, with modern materials such as aluminum curtain wall and aluminum composite panels in such a way as to recall the essence of the surrounding historic urban fabric, but do so in a decidedly modern way. The project includes redevelopment of four full city blocks and establishes a municipal campus in conjunction with the existing City Hall building and the City Utilities building, both located directly across 29th Street to the north.
