Mandala Sunrise

Finalist 2018
Mandala Sunrise

Mandala Sunrise was designed to celebrate the unique and remarkable blending of cultures embodied by UTEP’s special relationship and cultural partnership with Bhutan. This partnership, combined with the natural environment of the southwest, was inspiration for the project theme: redefining these elements into a highly engineered yet lyrical installation.

Illuminated Arboreal Data Codes

The main focus for this installation was to give a visual language for this site that is joyful, accessible and acts as a visual identity that connects the educational iconography of communication technology. This arboreal theme can be utilized as a visual complement by developing an environment where the viewer can experience the installation as a contemplative space, iconic gateway and destination for the college.

Flight of the Creative Spirit: Robert Crawford

Merit Award
Flight of the Creative Spirit: Robert Crawford, State of Alaska Public Arts Program, Koryn Rolstad Studios

The design team transformed an elementary school's common area into an educational and inspirational tribute to the school's namesake, Major Robert Crawford. With the long dark winters, the design had to be especially bright and uplifting. It needed to tell the story of a significant historical figure with a creative force equal to Crawford's accomplishments, yet be easy to clean, child friendly and durable. To achieve this, the project was interactive with the student body, and incorporates their drawings of "flying creatures of nature."
