Clark Nexsen received four 2018 design excellence awards from the American Institute of Architects North Carolina Chapter at an awards ceremony held October 19 in Durham. From 84 entries spanning public, private, and educational design by AIA North Carolina architects, the jury selected eight projects to receive awards. Parking Deck 2 at Wake Tech’s Scott Northern Wake Campus was among four Clark Nexsen projects recognized with awards.
Honor Award – Wake Tech Parking Deck 2
Parking Deck 2 at Wake Tech’s Scott Northern Wake campus in Raleigh features custom fabricated steel panels. This highly polished surface reflects the colors of the sky and surrounding trees. The panels create enclosure on three sides, but are kept open on the fourth side, providing expansive views of a natural buffer area. Stair towers are conceived as light lanterns that float above the ground plane.
Matthew Huft, AIA, served as jury chair with Jonathan O’Neal Cole, AIA, founding principal of Pendulum Studio; Trevor Hoiland, AIA, design manager at Burns & McDonnell; Angie Geist Gaebler, AIA, principal at STRATA Architecture + Preservation; and Amy Slattery, AIA, founder of Odimo.
