Temple Dining Hall & Booth Student Center Recognized with a 2014 Texas Society of Architects Design Award

awards + Temple Dining Hall + Booth Student Center

"A highly restrained and elegant project that successfully juxtaposes attenuated metal frames, stucco, concrete, and stone walls. Importantly, the architect maintained mastery of the tectonics throughout. The dining hall, in particular, was an elegant and light-filled space that deployed the steel frame to maximum effect. The project also successfully nestles into the existing campus plan while taking advantage of the topography and views."
