Thursday, 12 November 2009 14:25

Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) has been selected by the City and County of Denver to design an urban renewal project for a 12-block area along 14th Street between Colfax Avenue and Market Street in downtown Denver.

The purpose of the project is to create an “ambassador street” within the downtown city grid, linking together several cultural and municipal facilities, including the Denver Center for Performing Arts, Denver Convention Center, Webb Building, and historic Larimer Square. The initiative is the result of a public-private partnership of the City and County of Denver, the Downtown Denver Partnership, and property owners along 14th Street. The property owners voted in November for the formation of a general improvement district (GID) to provide additional capital construction and maintenance dollars to match a $10 million contribution from the city.

AIA_Seattle_logoEarlier in the week, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Seattle chapter honored architects and their project teams from across Washington State for projects exemplifying best examples in a broad array of sectors from single- and multi-family residential, to civic, to commercial.

Award-winning projects, which were announced at a sold-out event at Benaroya Hall, served as powerful demonstrations of the agility, inventiveness and foresight architects bring to their work in this era of change – improvising and reacting quickly to new constraints, and going above and beyond to improve the built environment.

LEED® SILVER Certification Print E-mail
Friday, 06 November 2009 12:24
Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) announced today that its Chicago office has been awarded LEED® Silver Certification for Commercial Interiors, an internationally recognized standard of sustainable design established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).

Design Partner for the project, Ross Wimer, commented, “In the design of our own space, we were guided by the principles that inform our client work. A practical approach to sustainability drove the decisions we made.” Principal of Interior Design, Jaime Velez, added, “Sustainability factored into every part of the design process, from specification of finishes to choice of lighting. For instance, we used a sophisticated dimming technology to maximize the quality and amount of daylight that enters the space—significantly reducing the amount of energy consumed on a daily basis.”

The Associated Press reported today that Jean Nouvel's  proposed 82-story tower next to the Museum of Modern Art has cleared its final hurdle.


The New York City Council voted Wednesday to approve the plan for a 1000-foot mixed-use tower on West 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues.

The museum called the approval "a major milestone" for its plans to add over 40,000 square feet of new gallery space — a 30 percent increase.


Hines, the international real estate firm, had selected Jean Nouvel as the designer for this building slated for a key parcel in midtown Manhattan, adjacent to The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).


We previously featured the building on Archinnovations, but here's a small recap. The building includes: over a 40,000-square-foot expansion of MoMA’s galleries (levels two to five); a 100-room, seven-star hotel and 150 high-end residential condominiums on the upper floors.
