Designed by renowned British architect Lord Richard Rogers, the project features floor-to-ceiling windows, a six-level below-grade garage, and a dramatic atrium that will connect the new building to the existing historic structure, built in the 1930s. The project will be one of the first commercial office buildings designed by Richard Rogers Partnership to be built in the United States.
When completed, the skylight will be one of the most complex that Clark has ever erected in the city. Shaped as a trapezoid, the nine-story glass atrium will be braced by a stunning steel structure supported by platforms and bridges that will connect the buildings, resolving the differences in floor-to-floor heights.
HKS of Dallas is the architect of record for this project. Additional team members include TOLK of Fairfax, Va., MEP engineer; SK&A of Rockville, Md., structural engineer; ParkerRodriguez of Alexandria, Va., landscape architect; and EK of Reston, Va., civil engineer.
The project is scheduled to be completed in Winter 2008.
