Ric Peterson pushes design — with ease. He's justifiably proud of the fact that he can move interior walls almost two stories high at the Center for Architecture & Design, with his index finger. His firm, Suyama Peterson Deguchi, designed the pivoting walls along with the rest of the storefront project.
The moving walls make the center easily adaptable to different uses. You can open up a central conference area to the surrounding storefront space, and to natural light and the views of passers-by on Western Avenue. The walls also can be closed to hold a large private meeting in the middle of the center. One wall is even fitted with tackable panels.
