One of the reasons I’m so excited about the UUA’s move to our new headquarters at 24 Farnsworth Street is the potential for enhanced collaboration that our new space will afford us. In that spirit, I am delighted to invite you to share your vision for how our new UUA headquarters will look and feel.
Goody Clancy, our architecture firm, designed this “blink” exercise to help gather your ideas about new design possibilities. Would you like our new headquarters to feel more modern or traditional? Would you like to see rougher, more natural materials or should they be more refined? Do you favor neutral colors, bold swaths of color, or a more neutral palette with pops of color here and there? Note that none of the images are actual choices. They’re meant to represent and suggest ideas, concepts, colors, shapes, and moods.
The “blink” exercise is designed to be quick. What is your immediate, gut reaction? What is your instinctual response to each of the photographs presented? Do you love it or do you hate it? Or do you fall somewhere in between? There are even spaces in the survey for comments should you feel inclined. This is an opportunity for all of us to go with our instincts and have fun in imagining our new religious home.
Your input will be incredibly valuable as we move forward in designing our new space. If possible, please respond by Monday, July 15. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
