BRONZE AWARD: Juilliard School, New York, N.Y.

November 09, 2011 |

Largely unchanged since its construction in 1969, in more recent years the Juilliard School in New York City was in need of expansions and upgrades. The school was originally designed by Pietro Belluschi to house the international conservatory of music, dance, and drama. In order to keep up with an expanding student enrollment and educational opportunities, the school decided to add 39,000 sf of classrooms, musical practice rooms, rehearsal space, and two performance venues.

Led by FXFOWLE Architects, the Building Team of Diller Scofidio + Renfro (co-architect), Arup (structural/electrical engineer), Langan Engineering & Environmental Services (site/civil engineer), and Turner Construction Co. (GC/CM) began construction in 2005 and completed the project five years later. A three-story entry lobby was carved from underused circulation spaces, providing a prominent entryway to the school. A new box office with backlit glass and an innovative staircase that links rehearsal space to classrooms help bring the building into the 21st century.

Engaging with the surrounding urban environment, the building features glass curtain walls along Broadway, providing views of the life within. Previously dark, labyrinthine interiors are exposed to natural light, optimizing learning spaces and warming wood and textile interiors. “This was a really good effort to reuse space and expand the use of the building,” BD+C Reconstruction Awards Judge K. Nam Shiu said. “The spaces are very compelling.” BD+C
