7,015 square feet
Brooke Bean, Carly Capener, Tami Johnson
Located west of the BYU and Mt. Timpanogos, the design team found inspiration for this building from the natural environment.
Designed to infuse the human experience with a connection to nature, the design creates a sense of place with the building materials and building forms to mimic the natural forms of Mt. Timpanogos. Transparency is created in the design with a glass entry and stair tower. A band of cementitious panels on portions of the building imitate the granite outcroppings on Mt. Timpanogos.
Emphasizing the symbiotic relationship of nature, the interior space has a distinct flow and openness responding to the goals of member movement through the space and creating a safe, secure environment.
