In a recent article from The Architect’s Newspaper, Andrea Love shared insight into the design process behind the highly calibrated and high performance façade on the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex at Northeastern University, scheduled to open later this year. The sun shading system was developed through an iterative process between our Building Science Group and the design team. Given the initial desire for a curved façade, the Building Science Group worked with the team to determine how to deliver a curved façade that met the sustainability goals for the project. The end result is the result of a truly integrated design process wherein the building science informs the design intent and vice versa.
