An article in the Harvard Gazette offers a sneak peak inside the newly designed swing space for Harvard’s House Renewal and an article in the Harvard Crimson interviewed student residents of Dunster House soon after they were introduced to their swing year housing.

The design includes interiors services including layouts, furniture, finishes, fixtures and fabrics, as well as artwork, graphics, and donor signage for new student bedrooms, classrooms, and common spaces including dining facilities, gyms, libraries, music rooms, and multi-function spaces.

Beyer Blinder Belle has been working with Amherst College on the development of a campus-wide framework plan initiated in 2013. The all-encompassing campus plan is designed to serve as a flexible, living document that can adapt to evolving priorities and ongoing projects while abiding by strong and clear principles.

The restored TWA Flight Center at JFK International Airport, Eero Saarinen’s icon of modern architecture, has been recognized with an inaugural Excelsior Award for Public Architecture from the AIA New York State. The comprehensive rehabilitation project, commissioned by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, has returned the landmark to its finely-detailed glory and prepared it for adaptive reuse as a hotel, restaurant and meeting center complex.

Throughout much of history, there was no distinction between architects, engineers, and builders. Instead, an individual—the master builder—conceived of the form and materials of a building at the outset and followed it through until construction came to an end, taking responsibility for all of the challenges that arose during the project. This kind of continuity throughout the life of a project is intuitively beneficial: engineering and construction requirements shape the approach long before ground is broken and design decisions need to be made until the final touches are in place. Many of the world’s great monuments, from the Parthenon to Brunelleschi’s Dome at the Florence Cathedral, were built in this way.

The TWA Terminal at JFK International Airport has been honored with a prestigious American Architecture Award, bestowed by the Chicago Athenaeum in recognition of excellence in architecture and urbanism in the United States.

“It was thrilling to experience this first great milestone in the realization of a plan that will transform what has long felt like the back of the Princeton community and the University campus into a new front door – a gateway to the Princetons, a center for the arts, and a vibrant nexus of campus and community life. We are grateful to be a part of an incredibly dedicated team, to realize the University’s bold vision for a new neighborhood.”
