News: Beacon of Hope shines at Huntsman Cancer Institute

It has been one year since the passing of Jon M. Huntsman Sr., the visionary philanthropist who started a movement that transformed the upper edge of the University of Utah into a state-of-the-art cancer campus.

In his memory, a pillar of light could be seen emanating from the west side of the original HCI research building last night. The feature was originally Huntsman’s idea. As construction of the building was near conclusion in 1999, Huntsman envisioned a light originating from the cancer center that would reflect HCI’s commitment to push forward cancer research and provide exceptional patient care. The light became known as the Beacon of Hope.

Due to limitations in technology available two decades ago, the feature was not continuously lit. Architectural Nexus designed a renovation for the beacon and construction began in January 2018. Over the past twelve months, further improvements were made to update the installation with energy-efficient lighting panels. The new Beacon of Hope has 61 individual lighting panels embedded with pixel LED lights, each with an operating life of 30 years.

Today, the Beacon of Hope serves as a reminder that his vision lives on and will not stop until cancer is eradicated.

Thought Leadership: Kenner Kingston Presenting at SXSW 2019

South by Southwest, the annual conference and festival held in Austin, Texas, will host a session led by Arch Nexus President, Kenner Kingston and International Living Future Institute CEO, Amanda Sturgeon. The March 11th event is titled Nature Tech: Rewilding Human Habitat.

Regenerative Design suggests that we must restore each place we encounter to a condition of wholeness. Seeing nature as free technology is a key step in restoring our buildings, neighborhoods and communities to their full potential.

To leverage this technology, a critical shift in philosophy is taking place. The built environment is no longer simply a “machine for living”. Instead, a new notion of shared and intensely local habitat for people is coming into focus; one that is informed by the simple truth that WE ARE NATURE.

Thought Leadership: Arch Nexus Presents: Regenerative Design Through Adaptive Reuse

Are you in Chicago attending GreenBuild 2018? Don’t miss tomorrow mornings breakout session, presented by Arch Nexus’ Kenner Kingston and Patty Karapinar: Regenerative Design through Adaptive Reuse.

If architecture is the largest energy-consuming and emitting sector of the US economy, architecture is also the solution. Much of our green building industry is focused on new construction on greenfield sites, yet existing buildings within and around cities are ripe for regenerative design opportunities. Through thoughtful adaptive reuse, we are poised to transform our cities and the lives of the people within them. By reinvesting in the building stock we have, we take the most sustainable action of all in that we avoid further consumption of not only building materials, but also open space, clean air, and precious natural resources.
