The University of Houston’s Health and Biomedical Sciences Building 1 was named “Best Higher Education Building” by the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) in the Institute’s 2014 PCI Design Awards.
The award celebrates the distinctive beveled facade of the clinical, research, and teaching facility for this Carnegie Tier 1 research institution and the smart design thinking behind it. Catching the sun as it plays across the building’s surface, the undulating precast concrete facade system is an innovative, high-value design solution that responds to challenges dictated by topography, program, and budget.

The signature red stair of the new Frederick Berry Library and Learning Commons at Salem State is prominently featured in American Libraries’ 2014 Library Design Showcase, which appears in the magazine’s September/October issue.
The floating form of the cantilevered stair reinforces the emphasis of the design on space and openness. A pleated glass wall overlooks the new academic quad, which conceals a 48-well geothermal field below.
The library has been buzzing with activity since it opened its doors at the start of the 2013-14 academic year. It ...[more]

Shepley Bulfinch has named Matthew Bohne as the firm’s 2014 Summer Design Fellow. Matt, who will begin his final year in the B.Arch./B.F.A. program at the Rhode Island School of Design, was selected from a highly competitive pool of candidates.
During his ten-week Fellowship in Shepley’s Boston office, he will be addressing a series of design challenges on a range of scales early in the planning and design process.
Matt’s architectural education is informed by his background in graphic design, using composition on a two-dimensional plane to clearly convey three-dimensional qualities. In the past year, he has explored designing through drawing, and the use of manual and digital drawing techniques ...[more]

Although the design process is defined in phases that follow a linear path design itself isn’t. This is especially true in a project’s early stages. Design in its early stages requires exploration and we embrace the collaboration across the disciplines to achieve our design goals.
The art of creative problem solving has always been based around knowledge. It is this creativity born from the interior designers’ knowledge that informed the model of our internal practice of having the interior designer team integrated instead of in a stand-alone ...[more]

In 1997, Shepley Bulfinch established a ten-week Summer Design Fellowship, which is open to all students who are, at date of submission, enrolled in an accredited professional degree program in the field of architecture. As part of our promotion of the annual fellowship, posters are mailed to accredited architecture schools across North America.
For the past five years we have worked to elevate the quality and exposure of the Summer Design Fellowship, and the poster has been an instrumental part of that. Since 2010, we have posed compelling questions for applicants to answer and have commissioned posters by noted graphic designers including Michael Bierut of Pentagram; Experimental Jetset; Non-Format; ...[more]
