University of Houston Law Center outdoor courtyard

The existing late 1960s era buildings that comprise the University of Houston Law Center are examples of brutalist architecture, which is characterized by fortress-like and blockish concrete construction. Academic buildings are organized around several exterior courtyards and breezeways. Thiel Design Group (formerly Courtney Harper + Partners) renovated a 2nd floor breezeway as an informal student gathering / study area with the addition of a “signature” operable window wall, lighting and furnishings. This 2nd floor breezeway overlooks a courtyard, which is currently under renovation to receive a steel and glass cantilevered shade structure, decorative wall panels and furnishings.
