Photographs: Lamar CISD - Satellite Transportation Center

October 07, 2012  •  1 Comment

Hours under the enormous windy Texas sky.  Searching and finding the concepts that Daniel had previously described to me.  An industrial building, this new building designed by RdlR Architecture, the Lamar CISD Satellite Transportation Center read as a complex play of geometry on the soft prairie.  She does not fight to get the attention against the land but fit into the scape.

The sensitivity of this RdlR design goes beyond the human level and goes to the roof plane as well.  Her roof shape again comes from functional flow but ending sharing the dynamic shapes of the overall plan and elevations.  Tied neatly in unison.

The scale of the building are closely related to the height of a human, and also the relationship of the view to monitor the passing school buses.  Clearing the sight to the whole of the vehicles and all the decals.  The attention to details can be seen down to the little touch at the mail room, to capture the sun... like a LCD screen showing the "active" shelves on the other side.
