Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture

Notes of Interest

The site of the new school of architecture is at the western edge of the old campus, close to the river and the football stadium, at the happily congested corner of West Woodruff Avenue and Tuttle Park Place. Bounded by existing buildings and crossed by major campus pedestrian thoroughfares, the site is a dynamic zone, capable of sustaining a connective architecture and landscape and an inclusive urban form.

Asserting the belief that a school of architecture has a commitment to teach by example to both students within and the community at large, the architectural form and urban positioning of the new school is strategically active and interactive. The building form is generated by enclosing, defining and confronting the spaces and existing buildings of the larger site. Studios overlook the newly captured spaces. Students are in the midst of the urban activity which they will study and will eventually help form and influence.

JURY COMMENTS

What architect would not
have liked to have gone to
school here?

This project embodies
everything I would want in
an architecture building. It
is full of unique spaces, an
open flexible hall that
beckons people to
participate, and seems to
have surprises around every
corner.

“Our buildings shape us,”
as Churchill said, and to
have future generations of
architects learn and grow
as designers within an
inspiring building such as
this... is exhilarating.
