Commissioned to house faculty publications for Washington University in St. Louis’s Architecture Department, the Givens Vitrines sample the details and materiality of the 1930’s Beaux Arts building to create a subtle intervention.

In addition to contextual references, the vitrines’ form was designed to optically blend into the space.
