For almost 35 years, Pittsburg State University, Pittsburg Kan., had limited performing arts offerings for its students because the campus did not have a facility to support a large program.

Bill Santucci Justice Center

Impartiality, fairness and equality are all part of the vocabulary used to describe the American justice system. Historically, most courthouses have been imposing structures designed to convey that message with enduring strength and dignity. The architecture of the new Bill Santucci Justice Center in Placer County, CA, speaks of the symbols associated with the justice system with a voice that reflects the modernity of our times. A key element of that language is Reynobond® ACM from Alcoa Architectural Products.

Bi-Rite Café

Within the San Francisco Civic Center are some of the city's most distinguished buildings, including the gold-domed San Francisco City Hall. While the nearby Bi-Rite Café is no match for those buildings in terms of size, prominence or importance, the 640 sq. ft. food kiosk looks quite at home despite the architecturally imposing setting. Helping the little building make a big visual impression are ornately designed bifold liftstrap doors from Schweiss Doors.

Blackhawk Headquarters

The ex-Navy Seal and founder of BLACKHAWK! Products Group, a leading U.S. manufacturer of tactical, military and law enforcement equipment, challenged the architect to create a look for his new headquarters building that would “reflect the strength and ruggedness of our products.” The design for the 65,000 sq. ft. facility and winner of a 2008 AIA Award of Design Excellence certainly accomplished the mission. Among the product featured on the exterior of the $7.5 million, Norfolk, VA-project were 4,800 sq. ft. of Citadel Envelope 2000® Rainscreen System panels, finished in Bone White and Natural Copper.

Blackhawk Parking Deck

PressLock Grille from Ohio Gratings Inc., (OGI) of Canton, OH, is featured on the recently completed Blackhawk/Halsted Parking Deck in Chicago, IL. According to the manufacturer, its product was specified for its ability to meet the architect’s demands for a lightweight, open product. Structural steel supports were added around the parking structure to allow for continuous panel alignment as the ramps of the parking deck changed levels. Smaller panels were used as part of a segmented arc at their north elevation to create a canopy that extends over the top of the parking deck.

Blank Park Zoo - Sea Lion Shade Canopies

Seals and sea lions in captivity tend to have more eye problems than other zoo animals, with research suggesting it is related to prolonged exposure to sunlight and the amount of light that reflects off the surface of the pools in their habitats. With this in mind, as part of a complete renovation of the sea lion exhibit at the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, Iowa, two large canopies were constructed, using metal panels from The Garland Company, Inc.

Bluebird Self-Storage

Time is limited and regulations are tight for construction in the Greater Toronto Area, so it was probably no surprise when the developers of the Bluebird Self-Storage project presented architects with a challenge: build an aesthetically appealing facility and do it fast.
