OCAC Drawing, Painting, and Photography Building
Massachusetts-based architecture firm, Charles Rose Architects, recently finished the design for the new Drawing, Painting, and Photography Building for the Oregon College of Art and Craft. We love us some architecture, and what's not to love about this building design? It's so clean and contemporary. Look at those lines.
The building itself houses thousands of feet of studio space for its students with tons of ambient light (very useful during those long, dreary winters) for getting shit done. One of our favorite parts of the project description is that OCAC actually worked in five film development stations and three darkrooms into the design. The whole world is feeling the pressure to go digital, but it's awesome that the campus has decided to continue supporting and teaching the traditional methods of photography as well. This, of course, takes nothing away from the school because they also snuck in a state-of-the-art digital lab as well.
There are more photos and an in-depth description of the project on the OCAC project page.
