Sunday Projects :: University of Texas at Dallas, Edith O'Donnell Arts & Technology Building
Firm: STUDIOS Architecture
Project Location: Richardson, Texas
The University of Texas, Dallas chose STUDIOS as Design Architect for the new Edith O'Donnell Arts and Technology (ATEC) Building, which helps define the gateway to the campus. The ATEC building also includes a 1,200-seat auditorium as well as the new School of Visual Arts. The project has a significant architectural presence while also respecting the existing campus context and environment.
The concept for the building is that of a portal, architecturally communicating the convergence of art and technology. It is the University's intent that the building's program "brings together the knowledge and expertise of computer science, engineering, creative arts, and the humanities to develop new dimensions and new opportunities in education, technology, training, communication and commerce"...
