BNIM is pleased to announce expanded leadership with the appointment of new Principals and Associates in Kansas City and Des Moines.
BNIM is currently working to design new facilities for UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science (HSSEAS). The development of the Western Institute of Nanoelectronics (WIN) and Green Engineering and Metrology (GEM) building (Phase I) on the UCLA campus represents the highest of aspirations for the research community in supporting the advancement of clean and green technologies. The building will house three primary driving Centers of Excellence in the field of nano-systems and clean technology. The WIN-GEM facility will provide space for faculty and their industrial collaborators to perform research and development in energy harvesting, storage, conservation and management. As such the facility is thoughtfully designed for collaborative, multidisciplinary research, and the building itself is thought of as an expression and armature of that research.

Sixteen is a provocation that uses fictional narrative to guide the design process. As it applies to architecture, narrative prioritizes the human experience. It can be utilized and applied to the built environment in many different forms — but always in an experiential and emotional dimension that justifies an idea, spatial sequence, and form. It transcends daylight studies, space planning, and other data-driven findings — and transforms quantified space into place. The built environment is an expression of narrative itself that encourages its occupants to continue the story.
