SIOUX CITY BUS SHELTER

sioux city, iowa, usa | iowa state university | lead designer


As a service project, we were asked to design a prototype bus shelter for the city of Sioux City, IA.

The design for the shelters is centred on a series of layered typologies. The first layer, structure, is based on the locally prominent building types: “Storefront” (blue) & “Industrial” (yellow). The second layer is the result of studying local architecture patterns: Buxton (blue) & Elmslie (yellow).

After our initial design process we worked closely with local steel manufacturers to laser cut and powder coat the panels. The project was finished and installed in August of 2007.

Our studio was asked to design a hotel and cultural centre that embraced the urban landscape of Downtown Chicago. The project took shape in the form of a Music-Hybrid Space (sized in between a symphony hall and a music hall) and a 300 room upscale hotel. Placed on a plot of land on the Chicago River, the

IN SCHEM. D. SUNING UNIVERSAL MU

kunming, yunnan, china | woods bagot | designer


Suning Universal Mixed Use in Kunming, China. This series of concepts won a schematic contract for a mixed use development in the heart of Kunming, China. The development combines an office/hotel, service apartments, and a retail podium space. The project also creates a sunken plaza to connect to the local mass transit system and green spaces for pedestrian use. One proposal presents a twisted tower with two convex and two concave sides. The podium of this option reflects the same sinuous curves. The second option presents a smooth, curved facade wrapped around a faceted louvered facade. In this version all four faces use a glass patterning that ties back in to the textile patterning native to the region.

Chairman’s Office of Fengsheng, Inc

Chairman’s Office of Fengsheng, Inc in Nanjing, China. The schematic and detail design of Fengsheng’s Chairman’s office led to this interior fitout in Nanjing, China. The project held to the purity of modernism, respecting the nature of form and material to create dynamic plays on light and space. The office itself was over a 1000 sq m. and featured staff and conference rooms, as well as a full executive bathroom and massage room, and game room. No amenity was spared, including radiant floors, a hybrid cooling system (comprised of a cooling slab and central air), and high end security and automation.
