The two-story, 55,000 gsf David and Joan Traitel building added administrative offices and conference facilities for the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Clearstory’s design seamlessly merged the building’s rich material palette with the Institution’s brand and archive of war and peace materials from the 20th and 21st centuries into its flagship building.  The program includes a glass wall spanning the entire length of the public pavilion that chronicles the institution's history, custom wall coverings of curated and abstracted political posters, and a series of “spotlights” on key past fellows.
