Middlebury College Art + Architecture Building
Middlebury, VT

In Construction|Completion 08/23 (Naylor & Breen Builders – Construction Manager)

Gut renovation and addition to the 1967 Johnson Memorial Building, originally designed by Jean-Paul Carlhian of Shepley Bulfinch. The building is one of only three extant examples of Brutalist Modernism in Vermont, and houses the Studio Art and Architectural Studies programs. A new plaza, translucent entry pavilion, and luminous three-story elevator help bring the facility up to universal access standards while engaging a new arts quad, the campus, and the broader community. The interior of the building gets opened up to bring in more light and improve wayfinding, and new mechanical/exhaust and lighting systems will improve the conditions for making, presenting, and viewing art and architecture. The building will provide a campus-wide makerspace and shared shops and labs. The original Johnson Gallery is being restored and additional exhibit and critique spaces are created throughout the building.
