Plans for the University of Kentucky College of Design's relocation to the Reynolds Building moved one step forward. Today, six finalists were chosen to compete to become the National Design Architect that will design the College of Design's new home in the Reynolds Building.
The University of Kentucky Board of Trustees approved the design phase for rehabilitating the Reynolds Building as the CoD's future home this past February. At 140,000 square feet, the Reynolds Building will allow the college to launch new initiatives, expand their existing programs, and foster new design research and scholarship opportunities. Relocating to the Reynolds Building will also allow the college's programs to be united under the same roof for the first time in its history.
The six finalists are a competitive bunch. They are:
- The Living
- Marlon Blackwell Architects
- Oyler Wu Collaborative
- Studio Gang
- Trahan Architects
The University's request for proposals received 29 responses, which is the highest number of submissions for any University of Kentucky project. On April 17, all six finalists will be interviewed by the selection committee and will present a 30-minute public presentation on their firm's previous works.
