Students are exposed to the latest European architectural projects and to the international practice of architecture focused on large-scale projects in an urban setting utilizing advanced technology. The contemporary design experience is set against the powerful historical traditions of Europe, allowing students to wit- ness firsthand the creative dialogue between past and present. The internship presents practices and projects in the forefront of architectural and technical innovation, providing students a highly valued professional experience. The projects worked on at BUFFI Associés include a hotel and residen- tial property in Villefranch-sur-mer, an upscale residential building for Montpelli- er, and a city building for Perigueux. All images are owned by BUFFI Associés.

It is a non-profit media arts col- laborative organization. The goals are to create an environment where artists can make work inspired and achieved by electronic media, and to create a responsive public context for the appreciation of new work by presenting and broadcasting the finished works. The project is a 30,000 square foot building located in the DUMBO dis- trict of Brooklyn. The film forum is situated on the south bank of the East River between the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. The program for the project includes public spaces, educational and technical support spaces, artists-in- residence program, and outdoor spaces for viewing film.

At 95 floors and an approximate gross area of 206,000 square meters, the building is a defining element of the skyline of Kansas City. The building contains a hotel, office space, commercial retail space, and a residential component, with appropriate parking provided. The goal is to establish a building diagram which maximizes created value in support of improved economic returns. Another goal is the ecological and environmental impact of the building is demonstrably superior to typical buildings of this type. Working in teams of three, the goal was to create a project that enhanc- es and further establishes the character of Kansas City, while identifying itself as progressive. The building should represent it’s own time, the most impor- tant element of context.

International Student Center U n i v e r s i t y o f K a n s a s __ L a w r e n c e , K a n s a s S p r i n g 2 0 0 8 __ T h i r d Ye a r D e s i g n S t u d i o Professor Denton Nichols The International Student Center at the University of Kansas is a 25,000 square foot building to serve the international students studying at the universi- ty. The center provides a home and foundation for international students. The goal of the center is also to encourage social interaction among international students and the KU student body, and is therefore open to public use with several student union functions. Cultural learning is also a key element of the center. The center will include common areas for social growth and interaction, as well as offices for International Student and Scholarship Services to serve the international students, and the office of Study Abroad. A key element of the center is the orientation area, or “Hall of Nations,” to serve as a learning and meditation area. The goal for the International Student Center is to facilitate learning, and therefore understanding, of the cultures of the world.

M a n h a t t a n Yo u t h C e n t e r Manhattan, Kansas S p r i n g 2 0 0 7 _ _ S e c o n d Ye a r D e s i g n S t u d i o Professor Bob Condia The Youth Recreational Center in Manhattan, Kansas is approximately 14,000 gross square feet, and offers a variety of recreational programs for youths ages 5 to 17. The center features a gym/workout area, computer and resource center, and multi-purpose rooms. A variety of recreation program and classes are offered, and the center also hosts special events, after-school programs, and cultural activities throughout the year. The goal of the center is to facilitate growth and development in youths. The concept for the youth center is based on the surrounding prairie and its expanse and evolution. The strategy for the building is derived from the form and function of the ancient Greek gymnasium, which was not only an athletic training facility, but also a place for socializing and engaging intellectual pursuits. This well-rounded growth is the goal of the youth center.

  20. 20. The diagrams to the right aid in demon- strating the cellular form type, which utilizes a clear expression of the cell in both space and form. The cell is the unit of measure which defines the whole. The parts are proportional to the whole. The cell repeats itself in a geometry to create the form. The cell adapts to many functions, and contains all aspects of the building. The cellular form type is an additive form, but can also be subtracted from. The addition of cells is relatively easy, but the cell must be clearly expressed. East Elevation Section through courtyard looking west Longitudinal Section looking south
