Project • By Partners by DesignOffices


Coming from a traditionally designed space, JBG SMITH’s focus on this project was to create a modern environment for employees that allowed for more collaboration and alternative work places. Thoughtful details are noticed throughout, each showcasing the craftsmanship and overall design process that coincides with the company’s rebrand.   The bones of this project started by connecting two separate buildings, one existing and one new construction, each with a separate address. From the very beginning, tremendous amounts of collaboration were needed between contractors and firms. While under construction, changes were being made not only to the existing building, but also by interconnecting multiple stories to create an op... More

It is an interactive building used as a gathering space and play area for underprivileged children while they are on their weekend camps. Sponsored by the Laureus Foundation, it is located on the Magic Bus Centre for Experiential Learning.As the budget for the Learning Pavilion was considerably low, the structure is designed as economical as possible. It therefore attempts to use the least amount of materials with the maximum amount of covered, shaded spaces. This is accomplished through the use of steel columns and a lightweight roof.The structure remains open from all sides, par the toilets and storage areas, which provide support to the two de... More

Blind Trust

Gensler Seattle unveiled ‘Blind Trust’, an interactive exhibit, at the 2018 Seattle Design in Public Festival. Blind Trust challenges visitors to use touch, rather than sight, as their primary means of navigation and interaction with the installation. Visitors move through three concentric, rectangular extrusions formed by rope stretched vertically between frames. While these tightly knit rope ‘walls’ appear impenetrable and visually homogenous, many of the ropes are actually elastic, allowing a participant to create an opening. In order to pass through each successive layer, visitors use their sense of touch to find possible paths. In the center of the rope forest is a clearing, open to the sky. This is intended as a moment of reflection f... More

Voûtes Célestes

“Voûtes Célestes” is a generative and interactive virtual-reality artwork projected onto the Saint-Eustache Church’s chancel vaults, its central nave, its transept crossing, and its two transepts.Surprising imaginary sky charts are created in real time. The visitor discovers 35 different colored networks of light one after the other, that spread out in the form of sinuous webs. These large meshes take form and then lose their shape, changing following the movements of visitors in the central nave, creating ever renewed, diversified universes. “Voûtes Célestes” highlights the site’s architecture, the volumes of the columns and ribbed vaults come to life before our eyes. These suspended universes accentuate one’s impression of the monument’s... More

Through spatial play and optical illusion using light and shadow, a... More
