Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, north west Arkansas
Architect: Safdie Architects ; Store design by Marlon Blackwell Architect Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
picture : Timothy Hursley

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art Building – added 29 Jan 2013
The west-facing storefront opened on to the entry plaza, making glare and heat gain an issue. A store experience was desired to be warm, natural, and tactile and understood by museum patrons as an extension of the museum experience. A series of parallel cherry plywood ribs, fabricated locally straight from the BIM model, harvested locally in the Ozarks, organizes the space and forms the ceiling and millwork on the rear wall.

Union Station Los Angeles – 27 Apr 2012
This vision creates a ‘green loop that includes plans for the revitalization of the L.A. river and possible park extensions connecting Union Station across the 101. Key to the future architectural development of the site is the maximum preservation of the historic Union Station building and gardens. City and regional transit will be given the stage, with a focus on increased ridership and transit connections, as well as considerations for the introduction of high-speed rail.

Four Eyes House, Coachella Valley, southern California

Four Eyes House – 14 Jan 2012
This is a weekend desert house. Rather than planning the house according to a domestic functional program, the building was designed foremost as an instrument for intensifying a number of onsite phenomenal events. Four “sleeping towers” are oriented towards four spatiotemporal viewing experiences: morning sunrise to the east, mountain range to the south, evening city lights to the west, and nighttime stars overhead.
