CLIENT: Haizlip Studio / Inman Construction
PROJECT: University of Memphis Student Center
A new facility centered in the heart of Memphis’ largest urban campus serves as a gathering point for a student population of 23,000. The 170,000 SF building is home to a 350 seat state of the art theatre, restaurants, computer lab, and student body offices, all of which are organized around a three story glass roofed atrium washing the interior with natural light.
After twenty years of successful collaborations with Haizlip Studio, our desire for this project was to depict a “day in the life” of a campus facility that functions both day and night. The approach included capturing the essence of the natural light wash in the atrium during the day and the drama of the evening light. Introducing people into the scenes created a sense of scale and functionality.
