ADDITIVE LIGHT SHELVES the principle behind deciding to introduce light shelves into this space was done in order to not only provide shade and reduce heat gain within the circulation space; furthermore, it would counterpose the adjacent space across the corridor, a facade which is essentially etched and filled with perforated apertures.

LIGHT SHELVES an interconnection between the glass curtain walls on each floor is established in order to reduce the amount of heat gain in the spaces during the day while lighting the spaces simultaneously

DROPPED CEILINGS introduced to lower the amount of audible sound in the adjacent spaces considering that this section of the building is reserved to offices and classrooms for faculty aaand students

light relects off light shelf and into space while still providing a substantial amount of shading for the occupants of the space

GLASS PANELS Glass panels run along the entire facade and are mounted via the horizontal and vertical mullions on each floor

BRIDGE Turning point in the facade where one massing of the building connects to the other

LIGHT SHELVES These polycarbonate panels adorn each floor, which allows light not only to shed into the spaces by reflecting off the top of the panels, but into each of the classrooms and hallways. It not only reduces the amount of direct heat gain into the glass curtain wall, but also lights the spaces naturally.

ALUMINUM PIPING STEEL DECK

CABLE SYSTEM GLASS WINDOWS

These allow captured light from the light shelves to shed into the classrooms and hallways

The cables connect to an aluminum pipe that runs along each floor and is bolted onto the vertical mullions. These interlock with each light shelf panel to ensure that the light shelf panels maintain structral integrity
