The University of Texas System Board of Regents recently approved STUDIOS’ design for the new Arts and Technology Education Center at the University of Texas at Dallas. The program includes instructional spaces and design studios, exhibition space, faculty and graduate offices, as well as a 1,200-seat auditorium. The building will also serve as the new home for the School of Visual Arts. The design concept evokes a portal, creating a gateway to the campus while expressing the convergence of art and technology. STUDIOS is the Design Architect on the project, working in close collaboration with Architect of Record VAI Architects. The $60 million building is slated for completion in 2013.
