On July 21, I visited the Powerhouse Project on the campus of Amherst College, Amherst, MA. The project, designed by Bruner Cott, Architects in Boston, MA, is a conversion of a very old brick structure that once housed several generators for electrical services for the campus. The building is being converted to a new student activities center. The blocks are all 1/2″ depth, in face sizes of 3″ x 2″, 3″ x 3″, 3″ x 4″, and 3″ x 5″. The blocks are being installed by JJCurran Flooring Company, using Bostik Adhesive. I’m looking forward to returning to see the finished floor, and to see all the furnishings that will be used. Smith College in Northampton, MA and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art are both right nearby. But, this is the first mesquite installation in the area!
