Located on Montgomery Street, a commercial corridor that runs between the Arlington Heights neighborhood and the Museum/Cultural District of Fort Worth, this project houses photography classrooms, studios, and a retail area. The upper level walls and aperture wall were poured on the ground and lifted into place, while the lower level walls were cast in place. The hole pattern in the concrete screen wall depicts the seven standard apertures that control how much light is allowed to enter a camera. The openings in the wall are conically flared to increase the visual transparency and graphic presentation. The program also includes a children’s waiting area.
