The Hotel
as
a Community Builder

Building
as
a Teaching Tool

Olio is a new 27-story, 116-room hotel located in the heart of New York
City's theater district. Designed by the Rockwell Group, the hotel,
opening later this year, celebrates the life and blood of the city's theater
district, and will serve as a gathering place and destination for travelers,
locals, and the theater community. At the heart of this new hotel concept
is a first-of-its-kind curated art program with permanent and rotating
works of art by emerging and established theater creatives, which will
hang in the hotel's public spaces and rotate every six months. Moreover,
selected pieces will be available for purchase with the proceeds
benefiting both the Actors Fund and the American Theatre Wing. 
As creative director of the program, David Rockwell selected
a stellar group of co-curators for the inaugural exhibition including
two-time Tony Award-winning scenic designer Christine Jones,
Tony Award-winning costume designer Ann Roth, and nine-time Tony
Award-winning lighting designer Jules Fisher. The curatorial team,
in turn, will invite fellow artists to contribute sketches, design concepts,
models, still photos, costume pieces, digital art, and other items
showcasing their design work as well as original art pieces that explore
other facets of their artistic expression for Olio's permanent and
temporary art collections. Scenic designer Tony Walton will be
contributing sketches of each of the 41 Broadway theaters that will be
incorporated into custom light fixtures in Olio's public spaces. In addition,
the work of veteran Broadway photographers, including Joan Marcus,
Matt Murphy, and Bruce Glikas, will be featured in the hotel. Finally, Olio's
bar and lounge will feature pop-up performances, allowing emerging
artists to present new theater work in various stages of development
to an audience in an intimate and engaging setting.

Set to open in fall 2022, the Seneca Valley K-6 school project was
envisioned by CannonDesign in partnership with the Children's Museum
of Pittsburgh. Exploring how schools can emulate children's museums,
the team is looking at how to make learning spaces more compelling,
relevant, engaging, and successful for students. This collaboration has
explored and highlighted the educational opportunities available when
teachers and students are empowered to curate their experiences
and space.
"Generally speaking, children are more enthusiastic about
heading to a children's museum than school even though learning occurs
in both places," says Troy Hoggard, design principal. "The Seneca Valley
project explores physical and emotional reasons behind this reality
and as a result seeks to create learning communities that ignite more
joy and engagement in the school experience."
Several concepts of museum design will make Seneca Valley's K-6
school a more active learning experience including large-scale magnetic
wall maps; a wall-mounted energy use dashboard with accompanying
student-accessible apps that educate about energy performance
and monitoring; floor graphics and patterns that teach students about
measurement, distance, scale, and proportion; a main canopy lighting
constellation "time capsule" that documents the night sky the month
the school will open; a transparent layered wall explaining the building
construction assemblies; and mechanical pump and fan rooms with
illuminated displays and interpretive graphics that demonstrate
condensation, evaporation, conduction, and convection.
"The goal is for Seneca Valley's K-6 school to bring more effective,
joy-filled, and self-curated learning experiences to the students it serves,"
says Mike Corb, Pittsburgh education market leader and educational
planner, CannonDesign. "We also believe it can stand as a model for other
PK-12 schools across the country and encourage them to partner with
children's museums to explore new design concepts."
