1302, Gallaudet University International Competition, 2016

The rendering shows a multi-story atrium. A low flight of circular stairs becomes impromptu seating. Interior balconies connect people visually. Fins in the ceiling diffuse light. Hall McKnight, an architectural firm located in Ireland, won a competition to design this campus building at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. According to the architects, "We want to make places that offer a unique sensory experience conducive to, and expressive of, Deaf culture and people of all abilities."
