Phoenix College Fine Arts Building
28,000 GSF |
The Fine Arts Building at Phoenix College manifests the desire to create a “landmark facility” at the northern end of the campus. The building celebrates and reinforces the Art curriculum. A state-of-the art facility will enable the College to attract visiting artists to exhibit, lecture and teach within the building.
The Fine Arts Building incorporates three art departments: Photography, Graphic Arts, and Media Arts all arranged to ensure interaction and interdependence between the programs and the surrounding Valley community. As a result, the design concept ensures interaction, visibility and synergy between the users.
The two-story facility defines a landscape courtyard or enclave for the art students with a private interior courtyard for contemplative thought and inspiration. The facility’s public façade is highly visible and with open space for exhibits held within the gallery.
