DALLAS HOLOCAUST MUSEUM 

architect: Cooper Joseph Studio

In an effort to expand their mission and public programs, the Dallas Holocaust Museum organized a competition for conceptual design. Partnering with Overland Partners of San Antonio, CJS was a finalist in this three-phase intensive study.

Located in Dallas’s downtown warehouse district, the proposed museum’s distinctive massing serves as a counterpoint to the adjacent brick buildings. Simple in its geometry, the tower rises on the northern edge of the site from a single story plinth. With its retention of the street edge, the building is both urbane and monumental. Sheared in section, the façade is a composition of white marble and translucent glass channel. Inside the base, a large, circular courtyard with a rippling pool provides a setting for groups and individuals to have meaningful discourse.

The museum asked for a design that adhered to their content in a very specific way, with the emphasis on a linear promenade leading to an area of contemplation. The program consists of 55,000SF of interior space, including permanent and children’s exhibitions, a library, theater, and additional support areas composing a full-service museum.

LOUSIANA STATE MUSEUM 

architect: Trahan 

The Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame (LSMSHOF) celebrates two seemly disconnected subjects within one contemporary venue, combining North Louisiana’s profound history with its influential world of sports. Designed by Trahan Architects, in coordination with Method Design and CASE, the new $12.6 million venue will house donated memorabilia that embodies “the contributions of the diverse cultures that have shaped the state and are crucial to understanding the unique traditions and legacy of Louisiana and the Gulf South.” A complex design, generated with the help of BIM technology, reflects the disparate subjects in one fluid structure encased within a locally inspired facade.

AIDS MEMORIAL PARK , NEW YORK 

architect: Studio A+I

n infinite forest, generated by having 3 facing mirror walls along each side of the triangular block, defines the park and the memorial. There are no separate statues, sculptures or plaques. The memorial lives within the infinite reflection of the white birch trees. We hope this park will be all things to all people: the children playing in the bounds of the mirrored forest, the weary commuter seeking a respite in the midst of the city and those visitors coming in memory of their loss…read more http://aidsmemorialpark.org/winner

SALT LAKE CITY COURTHOUSE 

architect: Thomas Phifer

Situated in Salt Lake CityUtah, the courthouse design not only provides a functional structure, but also draws upon Phifer’s attention to nature, specifically the site’s changing seasons and sun conditions.   The courthouse respects the monumental presence of the justice system but that monumentality is balanced by the structure’s acknowledgement of its surroundings.  ” It embodies both American idealism and practicality. It feels like it belongs to the people, and consequently inspires and reminds all that it stands for,” added Phifer.

JAMES TURRELL " TWILIGHT EPIPHANY"   RICE UNIVERSITY

architect: James Turrell, Thomas Phifer

The highly anticipated “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace, designed by American artist James Turrell, will open to the public today with a sunset light show. The abstract pyramidal structure complements the natural light present at sunrise and sunset, creating a mesmerizing light show that connects the beauty of the natural world with the surrounding campus. This experience is enhanced by an LED light performance that projects onto the 72-by-72-foot thin white roof, which offers views to the sky through a 14-by-14-foot opening. Additionally, the Turrell Skyspace is acoustically engineered for musical performances and serves as a laboratory for music school students, as it stands adjacent to the Shepher School of Music on the Rice University campus inHoustonTexas.
