Description of Project
The Architecture Building, completed in 1926, houses the administration of the College of Fine and Applied Arts, the Ricker Library of Art and Architecture, the School of Architecture Offices of Undergraduate Student Affairs, the School of Architecture Media and Communications Office and the Duplicating Office. It also provides studio space for over 1/3 of the School?s undergraduate students and all Design Option thesis students. In addition to providing space for the above functions, the building also houses the Temple Buell Architecture Gallery, Daylighting Lab, School of Architecture Computer Operations Center and Central Computing Lab, Photography Lab and Studio and the Woodshop.
Over the years, the building has undergone several upgrades and remodeling to meet changing demands. The demands of the current uses of the building and the technology necessary to keep the School competitive with others around the country have exceeded what is available within the building. This request involves funds to upgrade electrical capacity for computer and air conditioning usage, increase capacity for data networking of studio and computer spaces, upgrade and increase amount of air conditioning delivered within the building to key areas such as the Temple Buell Architecture Gallery and general cosmetic refurbishing of many spaces that currently have spalling and peeling plaster and paint.
