Congratulations to Andersson•Wise Architects on the prestigious Design Award by Texas Society of Architects/AIA at the 75th Annual Convention & Design Expo for their gorgeous design of the Temple Dining Hall & Booth Student Center at St. Stephen's Episcopal School (Austin).  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. An honor well deserved!  Click here for more information on the award: >>more
