The Graduate School's Comprehensive Architectural Project Studio & Integrated Building Systems class submitted their Community Natatorium.
This program represented a range of challenges, including design for both humid and dry climates, responding to the needs of interior and exterior wet environments, and designing structures to accommodate both large and small spans. The Studio emphasized the use of local topographies, environments, social and economic histories, means and methods as a source for constructing the project design. The students were given flexibility to adjust the ratio of outdoor and indoor space in response to local climatic conditions.
