Many people search far and wide to view the world's most beautiful architecture, but from time to time, hidden gems are embedded within the local community.
Recently, Brown University in Rhode Island announced plans to develop a new arts building for approximately $40 million, according to the Boston Herald. School officials say the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts will be created to bring the campus community together.
"The arts are touching out into all the areas of the university: science, technology and the humanities," Richard Fishman, a developer and Brown professor, told the news source. "That's what it's about."
The building will cover more than 38,000 square feet. It will be composed of steel and concrete to create three stories. The walls will be mainly made of glass to give the building a modern aesthetic.
"It’s about production and presentation," Charles Renfro, the architect on the project, told the news source.
The Granoff Center for the Creative Arts may inspire more individuals to pursue their goals of designing buildings. Employment of architects is expected to increase by 16 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
