The Los Angeles Times reported on the surge of interest in the life and career of Los Angeles architect Paul R. Williams, who built thousands of structures around Los Angeles, indelibly shaping the city’s landscape. COworkers Rachel Bascombe and Lois Lee shared their experiences working on two Paul Revere Williams projects – the UCLA Psychology Tower Renovation and the Botany Building.
For both the University of California, Los Angeles Botany Building and Pritzker Hall projects, CO took great care in researching the original design intent and the stories behind the buildings, and how to carry the story throughout the design process. Coworkers Rachel Bascombe and Lois Lee expressed how special this opportunity is to work on these projects by a Black architect in Los Angeles, Paul Revere Williams, and continue to experience a growing appreciation to be a part of his story through the renovation of his buildings.
As the first building on the campus, Sedgwick Hall is a symbol of Rockhurst University’s rich history. In this journal post, learn how CO celebrates and uncovers 100+ years of history in this newly renovated building.
Environmental stewardship and sustainability are inextricably interwoven into CO’s design process as we seek to create buildings that will stand the test of time. We are thrilled our efforts have landed us at #27 in the ENR 2020 Top 100 Green Buildings Design Firms!
