Located on a small island off the Gulf of Mexico, Texas A&M University at Galveston offers a range of marine-oriented fields of study and is home to the Texas Maritime Academy. Ford, Powell & Carson reached out to us to assist in developing an initial conceptual direction for a new multipurpose academic building that would act as a gateway to the campus. The design acknowledges the maritime focus of the university by expanding the existing vocabulary of concrete hurricane-resistant structures that define the campus. It also reinforces a central circulation axis that is a core part of the campus master plan.
