Transferred from the U.S. Air Force to a group of volunteers in 1994, Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum is located at the former Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado. Today, the museum boasts more than 16,908 m2 (182,000 sf) of hangar space full of iconic aircraft, space vehicles, artifacts, military uniforms, and more. When the existing corrugated metal roof on the structure had reached its useful lifespan, the project team retrofitted it with a curved standing-seam roof.
Construction is progressing on what will become Miami’s deepest, most expensive underground parking garage. Reaching nearly 15 m (50 ft) and three stories below sea level, the 9290-m2 (100,000-sf), 236-car garage for the Una Residences condominium will cost $25 million to build.
The National Comedy Center in Jamestown, New York, is home to the country’s foremost archive of the history and art form of comedy. The groundbreaking museum is housed, in part, in the historic Jamestown Gateway Station building. Built between 1930 and 1932, the station featured custom steel windows as part of its chic Art Deco design. As a result, it was a natural choice to provide steel replacement windows for the historic building as well as steel windows and doors for the new construction when the comedy center redeveloped the site.
LMN Architects has completed the Grand Avenue Park Bridge in Everett, Washington. The 78-m (257-ft) long asymmetrical weathering steel truss spans from the hillside to a vertical concrete tower, creating a sequence of new civic spaces.
