    KAI Design & Build Acquires Atlanta Master Planner/Urban Designer Herman H. Howard


    - (ST. LOUIS, MO, May 29, 2013) - KAI Design & Build recently acquired Atlanta, GA-based master planner and urban designer Herman H. Howard of Studio H Urban. Howard will join KAI as Vice-President - Atlanta, Director of Planning and Urban Design. -

    "This strategic step allows KAI to offer planning services nationwide, as well as establish a presence for all existing KAI services within the Atlanta marketplace," said KAI President Michael Kennedy. "More specifically, with the acquisition, we can now offer planning in our other offices in St. Louis and Dallas, Fort Worth and San Antonio, Texas. Alternately, we can offer all of our existing services to Atlanta such as architecture, MEP engineering, interior design, and project and construction management. Atlanta is a key location because it is not too far from our headquarters in St. Louis and it allows KAI to have a presence in the southeastern portion of the United States. From Atlanta, we can reach all of the surrounding states from South Carolina, Alabama, to northern Florida. This creates a triangle of coverage between Missouri, Texas and Georgia.

    Prior to joining KAI, Howard was the Co-Founding Partner/CEO/President of Studio H Urban. He had previously worked six years in HOK's Atlanta office as Principal of the Aviation & Transportation Group before founding Studio H Urban.

    Howard has a Masters of Architecture in Building Design from Columbia University in New York City and a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of Southern California. He is currently a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology - School of Architecture and Urban Design Studio, and an Academic Advisor for the Student National Organization of Minority Architects - Atlanta Chapter. He is as member of the National Organization of Minority Architects and Urban Land Institute.

    World-Renown Architect Celebrates Completion of His First-Ever Chapel Construction at Xavier University of Louisiana


    - Cesar Pelli to dedicate St. Katharine Drexel Chapel in New Orleans -

    New Orleans (October 1, 2012) – It would be an understatement to suggest that building a free-standing religious chapel on campus has been an elusive dream for most of Xavier University of Louisiana's (XULA) history. That dream is now a reality – and one that exceeds original expectations. That is because world-renowned architect Cesar Pelli is the one who designed and constructed the project. Pelli will join the Archbishop of New Orleans and XULA’s President in officially dedicating the St. Katherine Drexel Chapel in New Orleans October 6, 2012.

    Pelli has designed some of the world’s most famous and tallest buildings. Many are major landmarks and include the Petronas Twin Towers, the World Financial Center complex, Worldway Postal Center in Los Angeles, Kukui Gardens in Hawaii, the US Embassy in Tokyo, Pacific Design Center, Carnegie Hall Tower, the Cleveland Clinic and many more. This, however, is his first chapel construction and first building in the State of Louisiana.

    Xavier University of Louisiana
    “The idea of constructing a building with spiritual purposes is extremely attractive to me,” said Pelli, who himself grew up in a Catholic family. “This building will embody Drexel’s traits of modesty, simplicity and spirituality. It will make you feel totally uplifted.”

    A chapel was actually included in XULA’s founder (then) Mother Katharine Drexel’s original blueprint plans for the campus in the late 1920’s, and it was mentioned as an upcoming project in nearly every university strategic plan for the past 80+ years. However, those plans were always deferred in order to address other essential campus needs such as new classrooms and laboratories, faculty and staff offices, living residences and other student-oriented service facilities.

    “The new chapel and its centrality on campus reinforces Xavier’s historic Catholic identity and its continued commitment to the goals and mission established by Saint Katharine, and will welcome students of all faiths to share in their spiritual development,” said XULA President Dr. Norman C. Francis. “The St. Katharine Drexel Chapel will be a place where the Xavier community can come together to celebrate the Eucharist, enrich its knowledge of the liturgy, foster religious vocations, attend life-altering retreats, participate in ministries of service, and give time and talent to assist the poor.”

    At a cost of more than $10 million [with all funds coming from private sources], the 11,000 square foot structure is situated next to the University’s new pharmacy addition alongside the Interstate-10 Expressway bringing motorists to and from downtown New Orleans.

    The chapel, which seats 450, is contemporary in design, yet the sanctuary's octagonal plan is rooted in traditional religious structures. Raised four feet above the grade, the building is reached by an 80-foot long sloping processional approach. This path is aligned with the original campus quadrangle and the site from which Pope John Paul II spoke in 1987.

    The design connects with the university's tradition of building materials and color. Like the other buildings on campus, the chapel’s exterior is made of limestone. Its domed copper roof, which with time will change into a beautiful green color, has a large cross located strategically at its crest that architect Pelli joked “will be visible from the airport to the river...” adding that “...people will see this cross and know it is the chapel at Xavier University.”

    Inside, the main sanctuary is 65 feet tall, with a ring of skylights which allows natural light to be diffused through a screen and illuminate the sanctuary. Incorporating sustainable strategies related to lighting, landscaping, and materials, the building is expected to attain LEED certification.

    A smaller mediation chapel will be used for daily Mass and for individual reflection. The two worship spaces will be served by common liturgical areas including a narthex, work and vesting sacristies, and a reconciliation room. Pelli, whose firm Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects has designed some of the most famous buildings in the world, including the Petronas twin towers in Malaysia that were once the tallest in the world, expressed excitement at the opportunity to design a house of worship at Xavier.

    Scheduled opening week activities include the official dedication and consecration Mass Saturday, October 6, at 4:00 p.m. with the Most Rev. Gregory Aymond, Archbishop of New Orleans, serving as the principal celebrant. Other events include special individual Masses (for alumni, faculty, staff, and students), a city-wide ecumenical service for local religious clergy, on-campus receptions, concerts, and personal tours of the chapel.
