Building Systems

Dive into the systems that bring our building to life. Explore in several ways: through live data feeds, detailed descriptions, and illustrations.


Material Choices

Dig deeper into some of the key material choices we made as we built the Science Center, from the floors to the roofs.


Energy Modeling

At many stages in the design process, energy models were used to help make decisions about building systems and materials. Design teams often considered multiple issues including cost, occupant health, and energy efficiency. For example, energy modeling helped teams compare window types and placement, as well as the orientation of the building on the site itself.
