Reception, Level II

Successive walls of concrete connect to transverse beams. The rhythm of this structure resonates visibly outward. Familiar moments and volumetric relationships are reiterated and become playfilled, as the eye traces energetically in each space.

Taking its name from the traditional barrier of a doorway, Threshold is an investigation of the physical configuration of structural concrete, circulation of creative space, and transition within the hierarchy of an architectural practice. Tucked onto the brow of the hill, Threshold embraces this restored prairie, from natural landscape to deep tray green roofs with natural plantings. In the primary studio, interns sit to the north,closest to the library. As they gain tenure, move south. This is an homage to the Benedictine Monk Iconographers, in which each piece would move from an apprentice’s preparation of canvas to the eventual final touches applied by the master. In a conference room above, the client presentation space cantilevers over the studio below, representing all members of the practice sitting at the table of work being represented.

As a family of gestures, the structure is a generative, familiar series of moves, at once of Wisconsin, and yet new to it. The abduction of prarie style.
