DESIGN OBJECTIVE
To emphasize design and innovation in the lobby of an architectural/engineering
firm by showing selected projects in dynamic ways.

A 24-foot, black and white mural outlines the scope of the project and serves as
a backdrop for smaller, more descriptive color photos. Drawings on silver mylar
are placed against a bright yellow wall of paint and brick, which refers to the
exterior wall treatment of buildings at the GM Tech Center.

Dramatic use of color depicts the night sky and serves as a backdrop for office
buildings. Simplified walls in the shapes of skylines create separate spaces for
the display of large photographs of the different projects featured.

 

Exhibit on Medthidist Hospital

A neon curve calls attention to the curved facade, one of the innovative features
in the architectural design of Methodist Hospital. The curved facade created
addition spaces for reception desks and nurses’ stations on various floors. Other
architectural elements such as columns and bands on the walls function to
give viewers a sense of the design and create a horizontal band for display of
project photographs.

 

Exhibit for Mojave Generating Station

MOJAVE GENERATING STATION
Bowman Design Group
Laughlin, Nevada

This permanent exhibit in the lobby of Mojave Generating Station displays
drawings of the facility’s structures, large pieces of equipment used in generating
electricity from coal, and interactive exhibits such as exploding dust.
The circular display case shows the geology of the region and visually references
the pipeline through which coal slurry is pumped to the station.

 

Etched Glass for Office Interior

GLASS DESIGN FOR OFFICE INTERIOR
Smith, Hinchman & Grylls. Detroit, Michigan

DESIGN OBJECTIVE
To design glass that would both allow light to pass through and offer privacy for
a conference room. To compliment the room colors and patterns in the
floor covering.

Two layers of glass were used in order to protect the details and facilitate easy
cleaning. On the inside, areas were sandblasted, while other shapes were deeply
etched into the glass and colored pieces of glass were glued into place.
