    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Prominently located along the Hutchinson River Parkway and Pelham Parkway in the Bronx, New York City’s newest call center will augment existing 911 services, strengthening the city’s ability to maintain communication in the event of a natural disaster or large-scale emergency. The center is designed to operate continually under adverse conditions and provide redundancy to the city’s primary call center.

The 450,000-square-foot, blast-resistant structure designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) is a perfect cube, with minimal windows due to security concerns. To mitigate the structure’s monolithic appearance, SOM gave it a serrated facade made of recycled aluminum, providing both dynamism and asymmetry. The 9-acre site features a wrap-around sculptural berm of wild grasses. The berm helps protect the building without being oppressively defensive.

Inside, the lobby and cafeteria areas feature a green wall that helps create a soothing environment for stressful call takers. It also acts as a natural air filter, drawing toxins and improving overall indoor air quality. Designed to achieve LEED® Gold certification, the project’s other sustainable strategies include recycled building materials and reduced water use for irrigation.

The completion of PSAC II marks a major milestone in the overhaul of New York’s 911 system, a long-term initiative begun by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
