Fall 2017




The Gonzaga Integrated Science and Engineering Building is a 65,471 SF building set for completion in 2018. Located at a critical intersection between disciplines, and with a bridge to the existing PACCAR building, this new endeavor offers the opportunity for true multidisciplinary interaction. The focus of this research affects a critical area of the program. Specifically, to provide natural light to interior spaces located within this zone of interaction.

In order to foster the type of interpersonal connections that this new center hopes to facilitate, attanding to user comfort becomes a primary focus of utmost importance. Well implimented daylighting has the potential to transition these interior spaces from places to pass through into places to occupy.
