Newark Visitor’s Center – 6 May 2013
The relatively modest programmatic scale of the project, led us do propose a fluid structure that can operate easily with different realities. Its dynamic shape blends with the speed and traffic flow of Raymond Boulevard, while at the same time it defines a smooth and organic edge to a recreational park on the river front. It’s ambiguous translucent and reflective appearance; demonstrates the different roles of which the structure can play within a complex urban environment.

Frick Chemistry Laboratory
The soaring atrium at 27 feet wide and 75 feet high connects the building’s two wings, fostering cross-disciplinary collaboration and putting research firmly on display. The atrium is named Taylor Commons and the building’s large auditorium is named Edward C. Taylor Auditorium, both in honor of Taylor, Princeton’s A. Barton Hepburn Professor of Organic Chemistry Emeritus. His research led to the development of the anti-cancer drug Alimta in cooperation with the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, and Princeton’s U.S. patent has yielded royalties that supported the construction of the chemistry building.

The Yogi Berra Museum
The architects’ approach creates a multi-functioning transparent gallery that serves as a flexible exhibition area, collaborative teaching space and reception hall. This one room gallery is a vitrine for displaying baseball memorabilia and the mission of the museum and learning center. The simple glass box addition is a ‘billboard’ advertising the mission of the museum and learning center. It has a visible presence and impact on the main access road that leads to the adjacent minor league ballpark that the museum shares its site with. The transparent pavilion allows the exhibits, temporary or permanent, to be on display from those driving by along the access road.
