Curtain Walls

  1. 1. Keith-Wiess Geological Laboratories<br />An existing research lab and instructional classroom building for the Geology department at Rice University. Phase I included a curtain wall replacement along the south elevation and a complete renovation of the 3rd Floor. Bricker + Canaday designed a 4 foot module window wall system to replace the existing 2 foot module concrete fin bris-soliel. WHR worked with them on the interior design and layout of the new labs, offices, and classrooms, as well as, a display area in the elevator lobby. <br />1/18/2011<br />1<br />

  9. 9. The Monsanto Center<br />The Monsanto Center houses a world-class herbarium collection, library, offices, and laboratories for the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Christner developed sustainable design criteria for the site development, landscaping, building envelope, operational systems, building materials, and interior finishes. <br />The building is designed to last 100 years and to expand to the west, more than doubling its size. The building rests on base isolators to survive a New Madrid earthquake.<br />1/18/2011<br />9<br />
