This complete makeover before and after the 2010 Winter Olympics included the replacement of an air-supported roof and the creation of a dynamic façade that can both mirror and generate spectator energy. One judge called it, “Heroic, iconic, colorful, urbane and appropriate.”
The panel of judges found a lot to love in this small public ice complex, which made advantageous use of a constrained but sloping site and telegraphed its icy interior using translucent exterior panels: “It felt really right,” remarked one judge.
Bold use of spot color and consistency of plan and materials selection impressed the judges, especially its entry portals and a façade that reads differently depending on the time of day. “A fresh and exciting contemporary model for today’s student recreation center,” in the words of one judge.
An expansion of an existing community center, this project uses transparency and positioning to extend the facility out toward the main street for increased presence and identity. One judge called it “one of the most beautiful interiors we saw, with balance of light and warmth of wood.”
“A jewelbox of community pride,” one judge called this urban recreation center project. One of the few recreational natatoriums in the country for underserved populations, the facility effectively adds a sculptural feature to its park setting.
Hillcrest Centre won a 2011 Facility of Merit award for its natatorium, and this adjacent facility, an adaptive reuse of an Olympic venue, was honored for its sophisticated palette of materials. “It was the interior design that set this project apart,” said one panelist. “The people-spaces were very intriguing.”
A 1930s-era downtown stadium that was formerly shared with a Triple-A baseball team is now a state-of-the-art home for MLS soccer and the Portland Timbers. Its dynamic cantilevered steel canopy, clad in cedar, is an iconic gesture that, like many smaller touches in the stadium, speaks to the Pacific Northwest’s heritage.
The designers successfully condensed onto one urban block an extremely complicated program, incorporating retail storefronts, the Student Recreation Center, the university chancellor’s office, the PSU School of Social Work and the City Archives — and achieving LEED Gold besides. Judges admired the layered plan and its “delightful urban terraces.”
This renovation transformed three formerly separate historic stone buildings into a striking structure that is at once modern and complementary. The gleaming curtainwalled addition, one judge said, “really celebrates the historic buildings. That clear juxtaposition of what was new and what was old made for a very exciting project.”
This recreation center project centers on a public concourse that extends through the building and reaches out to the east in the form of a new landscaped quadrangle. The judges admired its skillfully executed, thoughtful plan organization. “The magic here,” one said, “is that the brick building feels so solid and so massive, but when you’re inside, it feels so light and elegant.”
