    DESIGN FOR A CONSTRUCTION COMPANY

    The K. J. McNitt building in Oklahoma City is a living advertisement for the simplicity, economy, and expressiveness of tilt-wall concrete construction, which happens to be client Kelly McNitt’s specialty. Inside the building, construction details are exposed, including the pipe bracing for the south wall, defining offices, conference rooms, even providing the base for the reception desk. Next week we'll examine this project by the Oklahoma City firm of Elliott + Associates.

    ARCHITECTS HIT THE BULLS EYE IN CHANDELIERS

    For the project, "Multiplied Light," seven architects in Portland, Oregon were invited to design glass chandeliers in what was probably an unfamiliar medium, at an unfamiliar scale. Under the architects' direction, in the skilled hands of technicians from The Bullseye Glass Co., glass was blown, cast, fused, slumped, hotworked, drilled, and blasted. Next week Oregonian art critic Randy Gragg will show some of the results.

Next week Elizabeth Bollinger will explain the benefits Starkey found in her choice of 3D modeler DesignWorkshop and renderer Art*lantis.
