Digital Arts Building for Emory’s Campus in Oxford
Drawing inspiration from the colloquial nickname of the campus, “the temple in the trees,” a new building became the interplay between master-planned campus and the neighboring protected forest. Lifting the building onto piers allows nature to permeate into the building, classrooms, labs and auditoriums, blurring the line between built form and the natural world, and placing students caught between the digital and the physical into a play of inbetween space, caught between nature and concrete form.
