A prismatic, vertical stainless steel screen within this facade provides shading, thermal comfort, and ability for heat harvesting (which reinforces the natural convection within the vessel) as well as visual privacy for the inhabitants.
The glazed facade and interior spaces are composed on a rigorous module to achieve an uninterrupted visual connection between internal rooms and the larger garden beyond.
Apply now The NZIA champions the cause of architecture in this country: we exist to help our members achieve their goal of giving New Zealanders the best possible buildings in which to live their lives. NZIA membership for students of architecture in New Zealand is free – and our student members also become members of the Student Architecture Network New Zealand (SANNZ), which delivers a range of student-specific events and collegial activities for you to enjoy.
From students with long careers ahead of them to registered architects with impressive achievements, we exist to build a sense of community in the profession and promote your interests.
The challenge of creating a tranquil environment where students feel connected to natural landscape elements and daylight was heightened by the chosen location: a busy intersection between campus and the city of Eugene, on the site of a former parking lot at one of the major campus entrances.By joining with us, we can help you: The NZIA also undertakes curriculum consultation and degree accreditation roles and provide affiliation with overseas institutes, as well as organising and sponsoring the NZIA Cadimage Group Student Design Awards.Student membership is available to any student participating in an architecture or architecture-related course, the completion of which entitles that person to gain a recognised qualification prescribed by council as being acceptable for architect membership.A “double wall” facade addresses acoustic isolation, thermal insulation, and control of available daylight within the building.The walls consist of five elements that create a dynamic response to orientation while reinforcing the concepts of transparency and connectivity.Now in its second year, the awards recognise and promote inclusive design in four categories: New Buildings; Public Spaces; Existing & Historic Buildings and Research.
