New York's 'Folded' School of Engineering And Applied Science by Perkins+Will

New York's 'Folded' School of Engineering And Applied Science by Perkins+Will | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

The Buffalo School of Engineering and Applied Sciences was designed by Perkins+Will in New York, with an intriguing and innovative sustainable design.


The concept, characterised by an irregular folded-like structure wrapped in copper, aims to mark a new 'Front Door' for the School of Engineering. The building is organized around a multi-story gallery that allows students to circulate easily through the space. The intriguing learning space is vibrant and breezy; students can sit, discuss projects or share ideas over a cup of coffee in the multi-story student lounge.

Seeking LEED Gold, efficient strategies include improved building shell insulation, high-performance windows, energy efficient lighting design with occupancy and photo sensor control.

The u-shaped Shore Hotel, completed and opened in October of 2011, is at the apex of all that is good in Santa Monica. The property is situated a two minute walk from the Third Street Promenade and the historic Santa Monica Pier.

Shore Hotel is the only hotel in Santa Monica with LEED Gold certification. Every detail in layout and construction meets the highest environmental standards. Equipped with roof mounted solar panels, high efficiency burners and boilers, and a storm water capturing plan that treats and reuses storm water for landscaping, there is proactive environmental awareness at every turn...
