TEK Thanhauser Esterson Kapell Architects

Definitions II is the second fitness center in a series of three commissioned by Definitions Management Services.  The design of Definitions II is visually provocative and references the dynamic movement of the facility's workout machines.  Thanhauser + Esterson Architects were the recipients of an AIA Design Award in 1994 for the design of Definitions II and were subsequently featured in the Light Construction Exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art curated by Terence Riley in 1995.
