Bennington College Arts Centre
File documents a project for an arts centre at Bennington College, Vermont. It was designed by the Chicago-based firm of Robertson Ward Jr., F.A.I.A. for whom Price was a consultant while he worked on other projects in Detroit (see Detroit Think Grid, 1954-1968, AP144.S2.D73). Design requirements specified that no metal or rubber materials be used, and Price collaborated on the development of custom structural wood connectors. Architectural working drawings show Phase 1 of the project for a two-storey studio (1970). Later structural drawings, created in collaboration with Chicago consulting engineers, The Engineers Collaborative, show both a visual arts building and a performing arts building. Material in this file was produced between 1970 and 1973.
All drawings are stamped and signed by Robertson Ward. Jr., registered architect, State of Vermont.
Information on attribution based on the content of the file and on notes by Howard Shubert, CCA Curator of Prints and Drawings, in conversation with Cedric Price.
