Visual Arts Facility, University of Wyoming
I almost cried, I found this facility to be so stunning. It was just overwhelming.
Ceramics Professor, University of Wyoming
In collaboration with Malone Belton Abel P.C.
Create a safe, sustainable, and innovative visual arts facility that brings together the fine arts programs from scattered locations around the campus. Mitigate the impact of toxic art processes, and give students control of natural light to support a variety of art disciplines.
Every design decision was viewed through the lens of health, safety, and energy conservation. To minimize energy use, the Visual Arts Facility is oriented and shaped through a process of studying the way the sun interacts with the interior spaces. Designed to meet current needs for interdisciplinary collaboration, the facility also has the flexibility to address changes in art-making over time.
