2012 R+D Awards Winner: Building Blocks

The Building Blocks system offers the programmatic elements needed to construct a school. The fiberglass and foamed-in-place structural roof has an operable baffle to modulate the amount of incoming natural light.

Building Blocks can be assembled on site in four phases: site preparation and structural buildout; installation of roof modules; SIPs installation; and systems installation and fitout. The roofing modules comply with highway codes to expedite transportation to the site without requiring wide load permitting.
