MacLean’s fourth floor addition

August 2nd, 2012  |  Published in all news, MacLean ESC, Thayer School

A post at Dartmouth Engineer notes that a 3,000-square foot office addition has expanded the fourth floor of MacLean (2004-2007) and links to a photo.

In this before image, the main block of the building is only three levels high:

The design of the addition, like that of the building, is by Koetter | Kim & Associates (see NH Forum (November 2011) (pdf)).

A snippet of a 2004-era Thayer School master plan

The Koetter | Kim & Associates website includes an intriguing sketch, of which this is an excerpt:


Thayer School master plan by Koetter Kim ca. 2004

Ca. 2004 Thayer School master plan by Koetter Kim

Note the expansion of Thayer School all the way down Thayer Drive to West Wheelock Street, giving a “public” face to engineering (or business, for that matter) for the first time. Bold! Although the scale of the buildings in the image might not be the most appropriate, this would be a better use of the vacant land than what exists.

“Whittemore Green” as a name

October 20th, 2007  |  Published in all news, Green, the, History, MacLean ESC, master planning, other projects, preservation, River Cluster, Tuck School

As the irregular grassy plot in front of the River Cluster becomes better defined and and is transformed into a front door to the Tuck School (through the school’s Whittemore Hall), the space needs a name.

Landscape architects Saucier & Flynn have mentioned “Whittemore Green” in town planning meetings (pdf).

More images of the MacLean Engineering Sciences Center are on line.   This building is big.   An interesting little entry courtyard with gateposts that was not noticeable in earlier views shows up in a new view and is an almost exact analogue of the larger windswept space on the other side of the Thayer School, where it joins Murdough.   This one looks to be more effective.

This month’s Dartmouth Life has an overview of the nine largest projects underway, with images of several of them.   Two that have received little press lately but seem to get the go-ahead here are the Visual Arts Center on Lebanon Street (Machado and Silvetti) and the Tuck School dormitory/classroom complex that sounds bigger than when first announced:

The facility will consist of three connected buildings: the east and west residential buildings, and the central classroom and learning bulding.

That facility will be connected to the existing Tuck complex and designed by the firm that designed Tuck’s most recent addition of Whittemore Hall [more], Goody Clancy.
