Coor Hall’s Skin: Tectonic and Stereotomic Design The focus of this semester project is the renovation of Coor Hall, an Arizona State University office and classroom building located on the western edge of the Tempe campus. Parameters include building program, desert environment, and urban university conditions. To resolve Coor Hall’s paradoxical condition of exposed private and enclosed public, additive and subtractive techniques were implemented based on architect/ historian/ethnographer Gottfried Semper’s classification of the process of building procedures; the tectonics of the frame, in which light-weight, linear components are assembled so as to embody a spatial matrix and the stereotomics of the earthwork, formed out of the repetitious stacking of heavy-weight units. The result is a play on pedestrian perspective that allows for a private office condition with thin moments of discovery and carved public connections.

Combining Solar, Contextual, and Programatic Impacts : The result is a complex, connective language that moves in accordance to the many factors that make up Coor Hall; solar expectations, urban context, program requirement, and curtain wall composition. From the many elements forms a single component. North (East)

Coor Hall does not relate interior program with exterior context. The building needs to respond to urban conditions and different program spaces in alignment with the New American University’s aspirations for ASU to embrace its cultural, socioeconomic and physical setting. Coor Hall adapts to t he surrounding and user functions via a juxtaposition of tectonic and stereotomic techniques.

The analytic from the southeast corner demonstrates Coor’s change from a closed object to a dynamic system both inside and outside. Instead of a grid of drywall, the furniture of Coor becomes the architecture. The office bookshelves divide each office creating a rhythm throughout the floor while the assistant desks become the exterior walls. The office desks and chairs are movable to allow for individual customization of one’s space and facilitates movement to other parts of the floor. This allows professors to meet with their desks in the open collaborative spaces.

Coor Hall’s original shadow box curtain wall created a super heated condition that radiated heat into the building resulting in a poor building performance. A single layer of aluminum panels replaced the shadow box and allowed for the attachment of the vertical fin system. The art panels remain are were filled with insulation.
