AIA Orlando’s Annual Meeting and Elections will take place first, followed by a presentation from LMN Architecture. LMN Architecture is 2016 AIA National Firm of the year, they are an innovative and exciting firm that will be sure to inspire.
Washington State University Biotechnology and Life Sciences Building, in Pullman WA, shown above is one of their Education Projects. A “community gallery”, a two-story internal pathway containing research centers, administrative offices and conference rooms, forms the beginning of an academic and architectural linkage that will connect to future buildings within a larger research complex. A unifying roof expression and transparent curtainwall distinguish this interactive “spine” as a primary ordering element in the precinct master plan.
Another of their projects, the Octahedron was a signature installation for the 3rd annual Seattle Design Festival. Blending parametric modeling, digital fabrication, and collaborative interaction, the structure established a new precedent for the event’s human-scale design competition, going on to win an Honor Award from the AIA Seattle Chapter and inspiring expanded ambitions for the event’s future. The festival is put on by Design in Public, an organization with the mission of involving the public in design thinking. Set in the brick-paved Occidental Park section of Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square, the festival’s “Design Block” segment asks participating teams to design and build interactive pavilions and street furniture.
They have an extensive portfolio of commercial, residential and institutional work, including convention center design as well. You can learn more about their work and their philosophy at the lecture this month.
