Project Description

FROM THE AIA:

Located at the entrance of Wake Tech Community College, building creates a gateway to the campus and symbolizes the merging of technology, education and sustainability. While the primary function of the Regional Plant is to house heating and cooling systems, the project was an opportunity to highlight the striking aesthetic of building technology and to create a unique educational experience that reveals technology’s role in preserving the beauty of the natural world. The building serves as an educational facility for teaching students about energy efficient building systems. A simple rectilinear glass and steel box with a perforated metal screen layer houses, screens and displays the technology and creates a unique educational space for the college.
