JOHN McASLAN & PARTNERS

Frank Lloyd Wright's extraordinary campus at fsc, built between 1938 and 1958, faces the dual challenge of both physical deterioration and adaptation to changing needs. McAslan's involvement with the site, beginning in 1993, has produced a masterplan for future growth and a repair and maintenance strategy for the Wright buildings, developed with Ove Arup Research & Development. jmp is also working on plans for new residential buildings. The current phase of work involves a refurbishment and remodelling of the Polk County Science Building, the last work by Wright on the campus and dating from 1958. The building is being extensively remodelled, with replanning and much-needed air-conditioning and other upgraded services to give it a long future life. Work is due for completion in 1999. Despite the building's landmark status, the project has received State Preservation support, a reflection of the American emphasis on embracing change and prolonging effective life and performance in historic buildings rather than simply preserving old fabric.
