University of Texas Belo Center for New Media

Austin, TX

This 112,000-square foot facility for the College of Communication serves as a prestigious new gateway building to the University of Texas campus in Austin. The building includes new studio and production facilities, classrooms, public spaces and a full-height atrium, linked via a pedestrian bridge to the existing building across East Dean Keeton Street.

The project was designed to comply with the University of Texas Masterplan guidelines while expressing the dynamic and changing nature of broadcast journalism, and includes large scale digital signage and image projection. The landscaped plaza in front of the building enhances the gateway entry and links the building visually and functionally with the existing building across the street. The project incorporates sustainable design practices and is LEED® Gold certified.
