Unexpected Uses

Since its opening,  NADAAA has come across images of interesting ways people have used the RISD Fleet Library.  What was conceived as a reading lounge and collective ‘living room’ for student dormitories housed above the library has transformed into a stage, art gallery and ceremony backdrop.  Have you seen the space used in any other ways?  Let us know!

Post Cornell Professional Practice lecture, the students submit proposals for housing a resume laden USB drive.  This year had a great array of options but I could not pass up the old-school-Samsonite style briefcase sized appropriately in Lucite.

Melbourne Milestones

Over the last month, construction of Melbourne University FABP celebrated two major milestones. One being the removal of the supports for the 40 foot cantilever and the other, the installation of the coffered roof which has been an intricate and coordinated process to bring on site and install.  You can already start to experience the spatial impact of these two elements.

Meejin Yoon Finalist for Dudley Art Commission

Posted on March 3rd, 2014 by Nader Tehrani

Posted under: Things We Like

Meejin wins the art commission for the Dudley Municipal Center and in turn, gives the public a platform to engage, interact and put their content onto the public stage!  Her work, part of Howeler + Yoon Architecture and MY Studio, have always sought to include the public as an element of the experience and not just as a viewer.  We are excited to see the final installation which is only a couple blocks from NADAAA’s studio.

See full article on the project and finalists here.
