For 285 Marietta Street, ai3 has designed an office tower concept, the form of which was inspired by the negative space created above the neighboring industrial buildings.
When exploring potential design directions for the new library, ai3 sought foremost to reinvent the American library, dismantling the introverted model in favor of a more inclusive and engaging design.
This ai3-curated exhibition discussed the Italian design culture in the larger context of fashion, industrial and furniture design and its influence on the Italian motorcycle.
The building’s Bauhaus features are prominently featured and complemented by ai3’s use of ambient lighting, warm floor-coverings, furniture groupings and large-scale graphics.
With great consideration paid to accommodating a pedestrian experience amongst high-density concerns, ai3 designed the structures as compositions in shape and scale.
