Most of these are much more interesting than the ubiquitous glass, steel, cladding and concrete we see so often, especially here in the UK.

University of Southern California Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center, scheduled to open in 2015





Quote:
Location
Los Angeles, CA

Owner
University of Southern California

Design Architect
Pfeiffer Partners Architects

Project Size
55,000 SF
Quote:
Large Gothic arched openings will bring generous amounts of natural light into the spaces as well as create monumental openings for entries into the building. A grand stair serves a multi-story lobby at the main entrance, and the brick skin of the building will be Roman brick with large expanses of a diamond shaped pattern. The sloped roofs of the building are Italian tile. Window surrounds of precast concrete with detailed articulation give the building balance and richness.

Matt Construction (the same company building the USC Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center) also built "Our Savior Church & USC Caruso Catholic Center". Photographs by Benny Chan.










I think the metal rods between the internal arches supporting the roof are to make the building more resistant to earthquakes.

Quote:
This project, adjacent to the University of Southern California campus, involved demolition of an existing single story 10,000 sq.ft. plaster chapel and student center and new construction of a Italianate Romanesque style one-story 6,000 sq. ft. stone chapel, a 14,000 sq. ft. two-story brick student center and a 7,000 sq. ft. landscaped courtyard.

The student center includes a large multi-use room with ancillary storage and kitchen facilities, two lounges and office spaces. Design treatments throughout the project feature a wide variety of traditional materials, from rich woods to sparkling stained glass, beautiful marble and varied stone.
