ARCHITECTURE

The Intersection of Art and Engineering

Our firm’s architecture story began quietly. More than 30 years ago, we created an urban waterfront development strategy for a riverside Indiana town. Included in the plan was our first architectural venture: a 16,000-square-foot interpretive nature center located at the Falls of the Ohio State Park—the site of a 400 million-year-old fossil bed on the banks of the Ohio River. Classrooms, indoor and outdoor galleries, meeting rooms, offices, observation overlooks and a 100-seat auditorium brought visitors from the region to the new center when it first opened in 1993. The thoughtfully designed center continues to draw nature lovers today. We’ve come a long way since that first project, yet our focus remains the same—to enhance the environments in which we live, work and play.

Woolpert’s visionary architecture team collaborates with our engineering and geospatial professionals to provide full-service consulting for clients in the following markets:

Designing Destinations

The importance of a good first impression can never be underestimated. We understand the value of architecture in creating positive awareness and generating enthusiasm. Our designs attract users, engage them in their surroundings and enrich their overall quality of life. We are passionate about our craft, and our clients experience that passion through the unique designs of their project destinations. Woolpert’s design portfolio includes the following destination types:

    • Lifestyle centers
    • Educational campuses
    • Retail developments
    • Mixed-use communities
 
Looking Ahead

While we know and appreciate the value of an old-fashioned hand drawing, Woolpert is always looking ahead for new design trends and technologies. We excel in emerging design specialties such as 21st-century design, healthy spaces, live-work-play and urban reuse/adaptation. We craft tomorrow’s designs—for today’s users—with state-of-the-art CAD software, 3D building information modeling (BIM) and other innovative design tools.
