P-SLAMS Project Wins ULI Philadelphia Award

The new Powel Elementary and Science Leadership Academy Middle School (P-SLAMS) was recently awarded a 2021 Award for Excellence from ULI Philadelphia in "public-private partnerships, education development, and community engagement." In an interview with ULI, John Fry, President of Drexel University, said, "What stood out for me was not the great public-private collaboration that created this new public school facility, but the energy and excitement of the children from Powel and SLA Middle School... It was their school, and the middle schooler from SLA Middle School said it best when she said, 'this will be our home.'”

Rice University Kraft Hall Featured in Texas Architect

Our building, Kraft Hall for Social Sciences, was recently featured in Texas Architect, in a great synopsis of the past, present, and future of the distinctive architecture of the Rice University campus. Kraft Hall, the first building on a new formal axis of the expanding campus, sets new precedents for site planning, massing, and materials on this lush academic enclave. This building is designed to enable and promote collaboration among the two departments and four institutions housed within. An inner courtyard mixes fields of native plantings with areas for informal gatherings beneath a verdant canopy of river birch trees, transforming Rice University’s traditional formal courtyard pattern into a dynamic and productive ecological system.

“Once campus life returns in the fall — and, looking ahead, as this part of campus is developed — the building will come to life.”
