Monday, 24 March 2014

Phoenix Financial CenterShepley Bulfinch is growing its way to a new home this summer when we move into the south Rotunda at the landmark Phoenix Financial Center at North Central and Osborn.

For the past five years, the Phoenix architecture office has called The Link, its studio at 1st and McDowell, home. When we started to outgrow the space last year, we knew we were looking for something more than square footage. With its distinctive inverted concrete arches and domed roof, the south Rotunda could not have been a better fit.

The opportunity to call this ...[more]

Building an experience

Steve Erwin AIA, LEED APWe are at an interesting point in time when considering teaching and learning environments. On the one hand there is a fundamentalist movement in how we shape teaching and learning environments. There is a drive to get back to the basics. Bright cheerful and energized spaces that can adapt to a full spectrum of teaching (guiding) and learning (experiential discovery) are the new fundamentals for a successful space. Embedded technology and lecture based teaching walls are out the window. While this is happening, the biggest transformation in education since the ...[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.

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]
