St. Edward’s University New Residence and Dining Hall Texture

Down South 037

Down South 035

The texture of the brick at Aravena’s structure at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas is meant to represent a diamond or a geode, leaving the exterior rough while revealing a smooth glass interior. The texture was achieved by breaking bricks in half and leaving the rough broken edge facing outward.

Fontainebleau Hotel

The hotel utilizes a curved wall to form an exterior space and to gain views. The interior has a staircase similar to this one that was meant to put the women on display as they descended the stairs. -Ilana
