Since establishing his firm over 20 years ago, Charles Rose has developed a significant body of work of cultural, institutional, federal and residential projects. While varied in scope, style and complexity, each project is linked by a set of ideas that Rose has used with great success in designing more than 50 buildings. A careful response to the surrounding context; consideration for natural light and exterior space; innovative, sculptural forms; and rigorous senses of craft using durable building materials are notable hallmarks of Rose’s work.
Under Charles Rose’s leadership the firm has completed major projects throughout the United States—working in widely varying settings and responding to the particular opportunities and challenges they represent: physical, ecological, cultural, and historical. Recent design commissions include the Franklin Regional Transit Center (Zero Net Energy Building), Museum of Jackson Hole (LEED Silver), a library and studio buildings for the Oregon College of Art and Craft (LEED Silver) and a zero net energy office building at the Pease International Trade port for the General Services Administration under their Design Excellence Program.
The firm recently completed two major projects for The University of South Dakota: a 72,000 sf business school (the result of a national competition) and a 76,000 sf student union. The firm also completed a second structure on Brandeis University’s campus, the Carl and Ruth Shapiro Admissions Center, to complement the campus center the firm completed in 2002.
Rose’s work has received numerous and been widely published, including features in: Architectural Record, Architecture, Progressive Architecture, Landscape Architecture, GA, The Architectural Review, Business Week and A+U. Princeton Architectural Press published Charles Rose, Architect in 2006.
