Major General George White Headquarters  by SERA Architects

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/65/6540b15fb40ba8bdbe4bece791435a99.jpeg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" />SERA teamed on this integrated design-build project with Fortis Construction. The new Major General George White Headquarters&nbsp;facility provides an innovative workplace environment for both the Oregon Army National Guard and the Air National Guard. Set within a meadow, the headquarters contrasts with neighboring Oregon Military Department (OMD) facilities by foregoing brick&mdash;the dominant building material on the campus&mdash;and adopting a low-slung contextual building designed to visually merge with its natural setting. The place-based design concept &mdash;rooted in the particulars of the location&mdash;connects the indoors with the outdoors for a more productive and appealing work environment while lowering operating costs for the end-users.

The two-story, 50,000-square-foot building is composed of two independent wings connected via a two-story glass lobby. The building’s wings are gently swept back away from the central entry. The entry also serves as pre-function and breakout space for the adjace…

Better Place Forests – Mendocino by OpenScope Studio

Memorial trees are available for families to spread the ashes of a loved one in a serene natural setting.&nbsp;

Perched at the edge of a hillside, the building serves as a vantage point and gateway for visitors arriving at the site. The exterior of the building is entirely clad in rusting steel and the interior with redwood, creating a building that will last for generations.

Bjarke Ingels Group has designed an 18-story pagoda for Tivoli’s new H.C Andersen Hotel in Copenhagen. Created for the iconic amusement park in the center of the Danish capital, the project will include the refurbishing and re-purposing of the 1893 Tivoli Castle, as well as a renovation of the 1883 Panorama Pavilion. The new pagoda and refurbishment aims to continue Tivoli’s tradition of balancing old-world charm with visionary architecture.

Originally published by Entrepreneur Architect, Associate Professor at Louisiana Tech Kevin J Singh gives his 21-point rundown of how to have a successful and happy life as an architect. The list gives some pointers that will certainly help young students and graduates, but may well be useful to some of the not-so-young practitioners who need to refocus on what’s important.

The following is a compilation of my professional practice lecture on the last day of class. Instead of recapping the course or giving a final exam, I share with my students a presentation titled Advice as You Finish School and Start to Practice. I present a series of statements followed up with a brief explanation.

The zombie golf courses are coming

But subsidizing golf has become a toxic political issue in&nbsp;most places.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Are the days of America's <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/5682/golf" rel="nofollow" >golf</a> clubs numbered? Reading the news, it doesn't look too good.&nbsp;

A recent Crain’s report chronicling the ailing state of suburban Chicago golf clubs points out that while business was booming for the region’s country clubs just a decade ago, the game has fallen flat in recent years. Many golf clubs are folding, being taken over by local municipalities, or eyeing redevelopment as golf playing slumps nationwide. 

Real estate developer Chris Charnas, president of Links Capital Advisors, tells Crain’s, “So many golf clubs face the reality of declining play. They once counted on 30,000 paid rounds a year and now that is under 20,000,” adding, “Many course owners will want to sell any way they Continue reading “The zombie golf courses are coming”

Portland Playhouse by SERA Architects

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/cc/cca6eb412f115b449bd6df0ea1141422.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" />Since 2008, Portland Playhouse had been operating out of a historic, 1904-era church in the King neighborhood of Portland, making-do with sofa seating and make-shift solutions in a building long-in-need of updates. Opportunity arose in 2012 when the city officially granted use of the structure as a theater. With a secure home in hand, the Playhouse undertook a plan to transform the outdated building into a fully dedicated theater. SERA partnered with the Playhouse on a multi-phased project that identified programmatic requirements, functional needs, aesthetic preferences, and growth strategies for the organization. The results of that planning included a substantial renovation of the existing building, the addition of a 1,200-square-foot dedicated rehearsal and community space, and concept design for an outdoor component to be added at a later date.&nbsp;

Phase one of the transformation began by overhauling the 6,000-square-foot historic structure’s systems, including electrical and HVAC…
