We are pleased to announce that Arch Nexus’ Charles Bagley and Robb Harrop have been honored with awards for their illustrations as part of the Architecture in Perspective (AIP) competition. AIP is a juried competition hosted by ASAI (American Society of Architectural Illustrators) that compiles the finest in contemporary architectural illustration, produced by accomplished artists from around the world. While individuals from Arch Nexus’ Visualization department have been honored with this award in the past, these achievements mark the first time that traditional works from our designers have been selected.

News: Huntsman Cancer Institute Expansion Opens

The Huntsman Cancer Institute cut the ribbon on the 225,000 square foot expansion today, opening the Primary Children’s and Families’ Cancer Research Center, which Jon Huntsman Jr. described as “pure hope.” This expansion will allow additional cancer research, primarily for pediatric cancers. “Thanks to this magnificent new facility, we will double the size of our cancer research program at Huntsman Cancer Institute. We will establish a world-class technology center to provide our researchers with the most innovative tools available in the fight against cancer.” Said HCI executive director Mary Beckerle at the dedication ceremony.

The ceremony was attended by many, including several of Arch Nexus’ architects who were responsible for the design, programming and construction management of the HCI expansion.

Arch Nexus has had the privilege of working with Huntsman Cancer Institute through each of the four phases of their inspirational facility over the past 15 years. One architect, Jeffrey Gardner, commented that “A facility of this magnitude takes intricate attention from each and every team member from design all the way through construction. We are honored to have had the opportunity to participate with so many amazing people that made up the multi-disciplinary team that has made this come to fruition. It’s not just about constructing a beautiful building… but constructing one that serves such an important and inspirational purpose that has made this such a special experience.”

News: Wadman Branding and Environmental Graphics Project Comes to a Close

Wadman Corporation approached Arch Nexus to develop an environmental graphics and branding design identity for their newly remodeled office space, which is now completed. This was a unique opportunity for Arch Nexus to utilize our design abilities beyond traditional architecture through the collaboration between our architects, graphic designers, and the client to create spaces that showcase our holistic approach for integration of environmental graphic and branding elements into the architectural design.

Wanting to honor Wadman’s legacy while looking toward to a new chapter of company history, Arch Nexus found unique ways to incorporate past projects, corporate identity, and culture into the design. These ideas included photography of Wadman’s history and construction images used on the walls, window graphics incorporated images from construction documents from past projects, and a tactile sign in the main conference room which incorporates Wadman’s Logo with an image of their founder, Jay Wadman.
