EPIC Metals Competition - Year 3, Semester 2
Carnegie Mellon University (2019 Submission)
Partner: Edward Fischer
A mobile eco-lab for the students and faculty at the Environmental Charter School will allow them to learn about ecology in their city. This will branch outside of the school’s learning spaces and will invite many citizens from adjacent neighborhoods to understand the environmental mission and values.
This architectural object stresses in novel ideas of utilizing metal decking as an envelope. The effective alteration of the decking in two directions results in an aesthetic choice attracting the students, parents, and faculty in enthusiastic learning and ecological understanding. The solar panels above the heads, the growing areas along the exterior side, the interactive smart screens on the interior walls, and the tanks of stormwater right below the feet surrounds the users in the efforts of renewable energy, preservation, and positive thinking.
