Southern Polytechnic State University School of Architecture
Heery International Inc.
The building envelope of the School of Architecture, uses a number of materials and systems. AMI fabricated the aluminum plate panel system visible in the next photos. The white panel system is only used to protect multi-story interior spaces. It includes a series of horizontal elements that shade the spaces from high sun angles of the late spring and summer seasons.
AMI worked closely with the curtainwall manufacturer and structural engineers to integrate the structure and exposed elements of the sun screen system. Although multiple manufacturers and installers provided the systems that make up the south wall of the studios, it appears to be the work of just one company.
AMI also fabricated the two dimensional and three dimensional at the southwest corner of the building where the curtain wall system and sun screen systems are cantilevered. The design and the fabrication of the silver panels was closely integrated with the structural supports for the cantilever to allow the structural ties to occur in the joints of the panel system.
