The Perfect Pairing Between Old and New

Using an original architectural feature – a wide column of salvaged wood from an airplane hanger that once existed on the campus grounds – that climbs 30 feet from floor to ceiling, and adding black anodized metal name plaques and a 30-foot vertical digital display, PDG was able to capture the perfect pairing of past, present and future for this donor recognition wall.

Project Type:
Higher Education 
Fun Fact:
The reclaimed wood used in this display came from an old airplane hangar that used to be on the campus grounds and is used sparingly throughout many of their buildings.

The soaring entrance to Texas State Technical College's Fort Bend Campus Industrial Technology Center provided a ready palette for an impressive donor recognition display that reflects the aspirations of its staff and students. The names of the generous donors who support the ambitious dreams of students and the Texas companies that count on their skills and expertise for their future service and growth, sit next to a digital display that seemingly pierces the first floor ceiling and rejoins it upward into the rafters.

PDG’s Appellō CMS provides the administrative muscle to arrange, add and change content on the digital column. The collaborative video content development between PDG and TSTC staff and students adds a layer of authorship and longevity to this display, which will evolve as the college and its students push forward into new fields and applied technology not even imagined today.
