Our focus on the mid-rise is twofold, to explore verticality and repetition while exploiting, volumetric voids such as atria, courtyards, and rotundas (volumetric and geometric tools for wrestling the box). The project also acknowledges that in today’s economic climate, as the architect faces considerable pressure to solve an array of issues, we will prioritize the value of spatial innovation, aiming to return the architect as visionary problem solver. We will do this through the programmatic lens of the contemporary headquarters for the Sierra Club in Cincinnati, Ohio.
