Providence, Rhode Island holds a special place in our hearts being that two out of the three of us are currently living there the majority of the year. Not surprisingly, the importance placed in design on both campuses where Em and Dan attend, is evident from Brown’s new Granoff Arts Center designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, to the RISD Museum of Art designed by Jose Rafael Moneo. What are nice as well, are the little surprise design elements you suddenly come upon on both of these adjacent schools. Typography, one of our favorites for example, is nicely incorporated and used decoratively on both campuses. Strolling around on a recent visit we spotted some of these. I wasn’t able to find information on all of the designs, but have included what I did obtain.
