This iconic new structure introduces a large, critically important infrastructure facility to a mature campus, preserves an important green space at the campus edge, and frames the gateway for a campus entry. A sculptural solution for the 15,000-ton chilled water plant is integrated into the arts sculpture green area along the university’s east campus edge. The result is an elegant approach that fits well with the urban site and its surrounding context. The gem-like structure’s scale, which responds to the older brick buildings around it, is modulated by its composition of two offset volumes.
