The primary colors match the child-friendly atmosphere further expressed with the handprints in the glass’ frit pattern. It all adds up to create a cheerful welcome for the patients, staff and visitors.”| MORE

Austin, Texas, USA 2015 | Featuring: Fluropon®
Weathered steel is a popular architectural material thanks to its rich, mottled appearance, but it comes at a high price. The architects at HKS Hospitality Group in Dallas, Texas, were reminded of this as they were in the process of designing the new JW Marriott Convention Center Hotel in Austin. The original concept for the building was to integrate natural materials that are found within the Texas landscape. For the façade of the 34-story primary tower, HKS|HG wanted a weathered metal appearance, but when the team saw the estimate to use weathered steel...| MORE

In a community that is home to many companies known for being both green and pet-friendly, it’s only logical that the Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) would be a model facility.

2014 Markthal RotterdamMORE
2014 Wolf Creek LibraryMORE
Rotterdam, Netherlands 2014
Engineering, Production, Installation: Aldowa
The Markthal Rotterdam, the first indoor market and housing development in the Netherlands by Dutch architects MVRDV houses a bustling, indoor, fresh food market surrounded by restaurants, food shops and hospitality units topped with 10 stories of 228 distinctive apartments.
A mural by Dutch artists Arno Coenen and Iris Roskam decorates the inner walls of the 40-meter-high arch. Titled “Horn of Plenty,” the mural brings to life a colossal, colorful array of fruits, vegetables, flowers and insects with a nod to the work of 17th century Dutch still life masters. The larger-than-life mural conveys the desired effect using Valspar’s coatings and a sublimation printing process on 4,000 perforated aluminum panels.
“To help the mural’s imagery pop with color and crispness, Valspar's white polyester powder coatings are used as the first coat on the 2mm aluminum panels -- essentially serving as the gesso on the canvas. Following this critical first coat, Valspar's clear polyurethane powder coating was applied, a scratch-resistant, anti-graffiti coating that helps protect against both human and natural elements,” explained Massimo Meda, Valspar’s architectural manager in Europe.

Whether it’s in our daily commute to work, or a return home after an extended absence, the mundane details of a location are often shattered when a striking new building or business opens its doors. That very experience recently transpired in the verdant hills of Takoma Park, where a home purchased by builder Alan Kanner underwent a dramatic, full-scale remodel.
In order to construct a house that perfectly suited his lifestyle and aesthetic, Kanner relied on the expertise of a frequent colleague, Mark McInturff, FAIA, of McInturff Architects. Kanner crafted a complete renovation and second story addition, adding approximately 900 square-feet of extra living space. And Mark delivered.| MORE

2009 Judson University’s Academic CenterMORE
Judson University’s Harm A. Weber Academic Center resembles copper, but its sustainability efforts are pure gold. Judson University in Elgin, Ill., recently experienced some enviable challenges: continuous growth in its fledging architectural and design program had led to less classroom, meeting and office space, and the university had also outgrown its current library. School officials came together and concluded that a new facility was needed, with one major priority—the building had to be as sustainable as possible.
