Overview

3943 Stevens Way W, Seattle, WA 98195

Architecture Hall was designed in 1907 by Howard & Galloway of San Francisco as a chemistry building, but served as the Fine Arts Palace for the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition(AYPE). In 1937, when the Department of Chemistry moved to the new Bagley Hall, it was renamed Physiology Hall, as the Department of Physiology occupied most of the building. In 1950 the Department of Architecture moved into the building and it was given the name Architecture Hall. Architecture Hall was remodeled by Thomas Hacker & Associates in 2006-2007, a process that included opening up the studio spaces on the second floor and the creation of a glazed exhibition and review space. The building now houses the Department of Construction Management, Department of Architecture studios, faculty offices, and university classrooms.

Overview

3950 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98195

Gould Hall, built in 1971, is named after Carl F. Gould (1873 – 1939), founder and first Chair of the Department of Architecture. Architect Gene Zema and Professor Daniel Streissguth were the lead designers of Gould Hall, in association with Dale Benedict and professors Grant Hildebrand and Claus Seligmann. Einar Svensson and Professor Robert Albrecht were the structural engineers. The building is reinforced cast-in-place concrete. A large central skylit atrium serves as a gathering place for the College. Gould Hall houses shared college facilities including the Built Environments Library, Digital Commons, Fabrication Lab, Visual Resources Collection, classrooms, and the Dean’s Office, as well as spaces for the Departments of Landscape Architecture, Urban Design & Planning, and the Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies.

Special Features

Virtual Construction Lab
The centerpiece of this lab is a self-designed large semi-immersive display. Taking advantage of the high bay space, the screen is double height as well as three panels wide. The system was designed to be flexible and reconfigurable, so that we can make changes and upgrades
as technology improves. The current rear projection system includes 6 projectors in a 3 (wide) x 2 (high) array that creates a blended display 30′-6″ wide and 15′-3″ tall with 3072 x 1536 pixels in total.

The screen consists of 3 flat vertical panels at 20 degree angle to each other. This creates a screen that “curves” around the users who stand close to the screen, thereby creating a semi-immersive experience. However, given the large room, we can also project to an audience of 30 – 40 people. This display systems support research and education in virtual and augmented reality applications in planning, design, construction and operations. Mark Baratta, CBE Director of Computing is the primary hardware/software designer for this system.

Methods and Materials Lab
The Methods and Materials Lab focuses on productivity, safety, and health studies. It incorporate two primary components: a large high bay space in which construction systems can be used to work on specified building components or materials using standard or innovative techniques, and an integrated high-speed data acquisition system to capture multiple-feed digital video and instrument signals using high speed wireless telemetry. This space was developed in collaboration with UW’s Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Department.

Construction Education Classrooms
Several Construction Management classes are held each year at CERC, including CM 313 (Methods and Materials I), CM 404 (Integrated Design Studio), and CM 431 (Project Management II – Capstone).
