Oakland, California

Karen Fiene leads campus design and environmental stewardship for Mills College, a private women’s college in East Oakland. Mills’ mission to provide education for young women to become future leaders in a complex global economy compliments Karen’s interest in the design of places that foster creative learning. Since joining the campus in 2006, she has overseen the largest expansion in the College’s history and has engaged high profile design firms with a commitment to sustainability and design excellence. Karen was co-designer of the first LEED platinum building in Oakland, one of two LEED projects on the campus. As co-chair of the Sustainability Committee, she is leading efforts to meet the net zero goals of the President’s Climate Commitment and Campus Climate Action Plan. Karen was instrumental in receiving a Getty Heritage Grant and was a collaborator on the resulting publication; Celebrating the Cultural Landscape Heritage of Mills College, 2008. Current projects include the renovation of Lisser Hall, a 116 year-old performing arts theater designed by Willis Polk.

Formerly with EHDD, Karen gained diverse experience with academic and exhibit related projects with zoos, museums and aquariums. Karen served as President of EHDD for the last three of her 13 years there leading the firm through a critical transition period.

He received his architecture degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. He has lectured at the University of Hawaii, University of California at Berkeley, Cal Poly and at many conferences including the Monterey Design Conference.  His work has been awarded recognition by the American Institute of Architects and published widely in books and periodicals.

Many of his projects have broken new ground in high-performance design. Marc has been involved in higher education, museum, science center, aquarium, and zoological park projects. He has deep a passion for—and expertise in—the symbiotic relationships between landscape, architecture, and exhibits.

Prior to joining HGA, he led the design of the new Exploratorium at Pier 15 in San Francisco, which is a LEED Platinum Certified adaptive reuse project, expected to become the largest net zero energy museum in the United States. Other noteworthy accomplishments include the headquarters for the David and Lucile Packard Foundation in Los Altos, CA, a Certified Net Zero Energy Building with the International Living Future Institute; Valparaiso University’s Arts and Sciences Building, which is adjacent to his award-winning 2004 Christopher Center for Library and Information Resources in Indiana; and Factor 10 House, an affordable case-study house completed for the City of Chicago’s Departments of Housing and the Environment. The Exploratorium, Packard Foundation and Factor 10 House projects are all AIA COTE Top Ten Awards recipients.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  1. Can I submit an un-built project? No, all entries must be completed since January 1, 2010.
  2. Does the person submitting need to be an architect? Yes, the person submitting the project must be licensed in California.
  3. What are the categories and how many are awarded in each category? Each entry is judged based on its own merit, and not in a group. The portion of the award submission that asks for a category is so that the jury understands what they are about to see (eg. interior renovation, historic preservation, affordable housing, etc.)
  4. What is the Performance Data Worksheet (PDW) and is it mandatory? It is the sustainability portion of the submission. The only mandatory form is the photo release form; it is to your benefit to complete all portions of the submission fully.
  5. In the California-based projects PDW there is a section 8 that show a variety of building types and T24 compliant and Exemplar EUI’s. What do you want the applicants to do with that section? It is for information so people can understand what their EUI should be for project types. Can also be the baseline for assessing where they stand on AIA 2030 challenge; it is purely informational.
  6. Where do I get all the forms? They will be emailed to you once you register, as will your entry number.

1.5 CES LUs

The process of design can be equally invigorating and frustrating and every architect develops their own, unique way of creating order out of chaos and striving for innovation.

If you’re an architect, work with architects or are considering hiring one in the future, hearing first-hand about the means and methods different architects use to navigate this process can be invaluable.

Join AIA East Bay for an evening with 2014 Exceptional Residential Design Award winners, including Andrew Lee, AIA, Alexander Jermyn, AIA and Cary Bernstein, AIA who will share the design process that led to their award-winning projects.

Design Tour: Laney College Field House

Laney College Field House and Athletic Fields, Architect: Gould Evans

4:45-6:15 PM

Click here to register.

All are invited to join AIA East Bay for a tour of the design-award winning Laney College Field House and Athletic Fields, designed by Gould Evans. This project was awarded a 2013 AIA East Bay Design Award citation.

The flagship of the Peralta Community College District, Laney College stretches across 60 acres in downtown Oakland. The remote location of the athletic fields required student athletes to dress at the main campus, and then walk several blocks to the fields. To attract student athletes with the talent to star at Laney—and then continue their careers at major colleges across the nation—improved facilities with adjacent state-of-the-art training and dressing rooms were essential. The new 18,000 sf Field House, carefully sited adjacent to the football field and the new baseball diamond, anchors all of Laney College’s athletic resources. The building has become a powerful recruiting tool. The linear massing and continuous, sloping roof convey a feeling of motion expressive of athletic prowess. A dramatic double-height lobby features a “Wall of Fame,” and a balcony adjacent to the Director’s office offers views of athletic activities in all directions. We do not believe it’s a coincidence that the Laney College baseball team won its first division championship the year they inaugurated their new Field House and baseball diamond.

Senior Associate, Gould Evans
Role on Team: Project Designer

Amber Evans

• At the end of this tour attendees will be able to state at least three sustainability goals for the field house and how they were met.

• At the end of this tour attendees will be able state at least three of five sustainability goals for the Athletic fields and how they were met.

• At the end of this tour attendees will be able to identify design features developed with the goal of using the facilities as an athletic recruiting tool.
