City College Library by Caldwell Architects in United States 1

With the creation of a new Library / Learning Resource Center, the once exclusively vocational college now offers associate degrees, enabling the students to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Strong formal elements; grand portal, bisecting spine, elegant stair and bridge, play against the structural grid, forming a lively entry courtyard and sculpting the relationship to context and the spatial experience of users.

The Oval is organised around three levels. On the second level, a clear-span arch structure of approximately 330 ft (100m) that houses the 400 m speed skating track and the legacy sports. The lower level provides support functions and parking, and the upper level – a mezzanine for fitness programs, spectator seating and hospitality lounge. The ice slab can be configured to support sport, court and track & field uses, hockey and skating, other recreation as well as public events.

Circulation and exhibition merge as one can look from one level to another, from inside to outside. The “meandering” path in the sculpture garden above has its sinuous compliment in open flow through the continuous level of new galleries. Glass lenses bring different qualities of light to the galleries while the sculpture garden’s pathways wind through them.

Abbotsford Sports Centre by PBK Architects

Abbotsford Sports Centre by PBK Architects 1

The project is a three level design with the event or ice level at grade with the rear or “back of house” end of the building. The level up is the main or public concourse, integrated with the rolling terrain of the campus and located to take advantage of a natural high point on the site. As a result, the front doors of the facility are also at grade allowing for easy accessibility for all visitors. The third level of the complex includes 20 private suites, “loge boxes”, a large multi-purpose lounge, and smaller party rooms.
