RISD’s North Hall in Architectural Record

Josephine Minutillo writes on NADAAA’s North Hall dormitory for the Rhode Island School of Design with a focus on how the project nestles into its unique site. “A structure that is at once overscaled and slight—its laminar sides and sharp edges accentuating thinness—NADAAA did a commendable job carving out of its massing as much volume as possible, with cornice lines, terraces, and material shifts that relate to the surrounding context. From some perspectives it is king of the hill, from others just part of the eclectic mix.”

North Hall mention in New York Times

Posted on October 4th, 2019 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: _RISD NORTH HALL, Press

Frank Lowenstein, Brian Donahue and David Foster write for the New York Times on how CLT can help solve the climate crisis. RISD’s recently completed North Hall is cited as a case-study. Read the full article HERE.

“Across North America, trees stand ready to help us solve the climate crisis. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in their wood. One way to respond to a challenge from the United Nations secretary general, António Guterres, to seek “bold action and much greater ambition” on climate change is to protect forests from development, improve forest management and use sustainably harvested wood to build tall buildings. This will allow us to pump carbon from the atmosphere and store it both in forests and in cities. It will also support rural economies, improve wildlife habitat and create more affordable housing. This opportunity arises from cross-laminated timber, or CLT.”
