    Courthouse design team could handle PR for county board - June 11, 2014 by admin

    JOLIET An architectural firm hired by the county earlier this year to plan a new courthouse could also handle public relations for an additional cost, under a scope of services outlined Tuesday to a county board committee.

    The Capital Improvements Committee on Tuesday approved the Darien-based Wight & Co.s preliminary design work, which carries a $1.3 million price tag. Building a new courthouse could cost between $140 and $200 million.

    The companys work includes a concept plan, cost estimates, county population projections and tours of other courthouses. The county also has the option of tacking on other services such as public relations and communications, additional presentations and site due diligence.

    There had been previous talks by committee members to also include a study of the potential for commercial space, such as a cafeteria, coffee shop or public area, but documents presented Tuesday did not include that.

    In regards to public relations and communications, the company recommend working with the county to develop an initial communications plan and establish a consistent message for all county leadership and board members to have when representing the project.

    The county would allow the company a $100,000 budget for public relations, according to documents presented Tuesday. A $50,000 budget was included for additional presentations and possible site due diligence.

    The company also budgeted $93,500 in reimbursable expenses, including costs for printing, supplies relating to reports and presentations, travel and lodging expenses and mileage reimbursement, bringing total costs of planning to about $1.3 million.

    The team also will look into the logistics of having satellite court locations in the northern and eastern portions of Will County to address long-term judicial needs. Another priority is looking into the courthouses need for state-of-the-art technology and security, a design that lends itself to future growth and energy efficiency components that would ultimately reduce operational costs down the road.

    Wights plan of action still has to be approved by the full County Board, which meets later this month.

    Mirvish + Gehry sing a new tune: A change of plans for King Street West - May 28, 2014 by admin

    My, how things can change. With the recent announcement that Mirvish + Gehry Toronto, David Mirvishs proposed mixed-use development under the architectural services of Frank Gehry, has been almost completely revised, it is a striking about-face that has taken place and for the better, for Torontos sake.

    Since I last wrote on the proposal, the project has lost a tower (for a new total of two), figured out a way to save both the Princess of Wales Theatre as well as two of the existing heritage-designated warehouse faades, and has still managed to maintain its planned addition of commercial, office, gallery, and educational spaces for OCADU. The only increase? A few more floors of condos, bringing the towers to 92 and 82 storeys respectively. But really, whats six more floors when youre that tall already? All-in-all, I think its a fair deal.

    First, however, I believe it is pertinent to restate that the saving of the Princess of Wales is anything but a small victory for the collective cultural memory and life of the city. This is both an active and thriving place of performance, as well as having shared public meaning having just celebrated its twentieth anniversary last year and it is both great news, and really a relief, that it will be maintained. As well, the conservation of two of the four warehouses, while perhaps token faadism, is a step forward as the design plans continue to be resolved.

    In my previous piece on the project, I stated, Gehry is a great architect there should therefore be a way for him to make an affordable, proportional and historically/culturally sensitive development that would have thepotentialto become a new icon for Toronto, while still being a part ofexistingToronto. And I stand by this comment now more than ever, for it appears that Gehry has proven it to be true.

    But what I find most interesting is that Gehry is now apparently looking for a sense of dignity to be the hallmark of the project. What is so intriguing about this is that, before this recent turn of events, or rather plans, the branding and promotion of the project seemed to be centred around the notion of creating an iconic architecture perhaps not an antonym, but definitely not a synonym for dignity. For the expression of creating (as opposed to a great building becoming) an icon conjures up ideas of loud, flashy star-architecture, one meant to claim its importance to the city not through merit given, but rather from sheer volume, intensity, or abstraction.

    Dignity, on the other hand, seems to allude to a sense of understanding of place, context, and appropriateness. Now this is not to say a dignified building cannot be tall, grand, or one that stands out visually from the rest, however, the word alone seems to suggest a very different direction and nuance than that of iconic. But for whatever reason that has caused this change ofheart, I believe it is for the better, and in fact think that the project, if it continues to strive to build truly great architecture, may come to be known as an icon of and for Toronto after all. But this will ultimately be up to the people to decide.

    For now, it appears, that the emphasis, focus, and conversation of the project has finally returned to the architecture itself, rather than a superficial notion of building an icon. And we can now begin to talk about the towers cascading like waterfalls, solid-void relationships, proportions, and relationships to the surrounding site and urban context. We can talk about materiality, texture, and light, and we can analyze how the new structure will meet the street.

    For example, in terms of the current projects urban presence, there now appears to be a well-balanced approach to the streetscape through the maintaining of the existing street edge for a large portion of the block along King Street, between John Street and Ed Mirvish Way, while the Northwest corner of King and John will see the new structures meet the ground, creating a new presence and dialogue with the city, while not completely swamping the site. These were not conversation that could be had before, but I am thankful that we have finally arrived at this point.

    Mirvish + Gehry have seemingly listened to what the people of Toronto (saving both the theatre, and warehouses in part), and its city planners want (resulting in a project of a more reasonable density but perhaps this has been seen as the compromise needed to give the project a fighting chance for approval), while still allowing for Gehry to make use to his own artistic genius. This has shown that people can advocate for their cities, architects can work creatively within this desires, and I believe we have gotten a much more elegant design proposal as a result.

    We can now all go back to gushing over Gehry.

    How your new East Perth will look - May 27, 2014 by admin

    More details have been released about the transformation of an extensive plot in East Perth. Photo: Aleisha Orr

    The revitalisation of the quieter part of East Perth is progressing with the old Chem Centre building going on the market.

    Minister for Planning John Day announced that expressions of interest were being sought for developers work on the 5,335sqm site.

    With potential for retail, residential and commercial accommodation ranging from four to 16-storeys, development of the site Lot 101, Hay Street- will ensure the new East Perth community has adequate access to a variety of shops and essential services close to where they live, he said.

    Lot 101 Hay Street will breathe new life into the area.

    The development is expected to brighten up the area that will also benefit from other works happening in the area as part of the state governments Riverside project.


    Further east, next year Lend Lease will start construction on Waterbank which includes as extension of Hay Street to the Swan River, a public beach, jetty and up to 1000 new apartments, Mr Day said.

    The heritage listed building is the pink brick building behind us and that has been used for, I would say, 30 to 40 years, as the Chemistry Centre laboratories for Western Australia.

    The Chemistry Centre is an important agency in analysing a whole range of scientific tests in relation to illicit drugs for example, environmental protection, the racing industry, they play an important role in and other scientific research, theyve been relocated about eight years ago I think it was, into a new building purpose built for them at Curtin University site, this site has been disused since then.
