Center for Digital Imaging Arts, Boston University
The space for this Boston University satellite campus was designed to create an environment that would foster creativity for a hands-on career-oriented education and training in the rapidly emerging digital arts fields of Digital Filmmaking, Photography, 3D Animation, Graphic & Web Design, Audio Production, and Web Development.
The program requirement for this space included classroom space with adequate student seating in addition to photographic and filming studios. The space occupies a former movie theatre, which provided an interesting design challenge. The final design accomplished a “gallery-like” feel. In addition, all mechanical systems were updated, and the projet remained within the client’s budget.
