Bethany Free Will Baptist hired TriArch to help them design a student center that embraced their mission statement: Be Different.  Be Real.  Follow Jesus.

 

TriArch was able to translate those words into geometry that conceptually symbolized their intent.  By designing a "building within a building" that was slightly rotated from the original, a "shift" is representative of being different.  Exposed structure and "vulnerable" geometry at the entry represent the authenticity of being real.  Finally, the release of tension of forms as a student walks into  the space represents the calling to follow Jesus.
