USMA West Point Thayer Hall Design - Exterior Rendering

QPK’s renovation design reinvents and expands the non-descript Thayer Hall interior into a state-of-the-art academic building, creating a stimulating environment for collaborative learning, cross disciplinary interaction and providing facilities befitting of the world’s premier academic / leadership institution.

The proposed two-story vertical expansion is distinct, yet consistent with the West Point vernacular. The arched copper roof with glass panels pays homage to the original riding academy and the grand concourse below provides natural light deep into the building, forming the signature space for Thayer Hall.

Jury Comments

An excellent concept study covering existing conditions, mission statement, goals, analysis and syn­thesis. The result is a beautifully integrated, complex adaptive reuse and expansion of an important architecturally significant historic facility. A very well conceived, innovative renovation/expansion of historical building on a tight site. Great renderings and 3D sections explain the design and help visualize the completed building. Reflects a thorough design process including charette, ATFP, day­lighting, materiality and integration with existing campus circulation and other systems.
