These drawings begin the analyze and understand the site, in the context of program and geographic data. As one of the ten headquarters in the world, this project is situated between the capitol building and UT, serving as a bridge between the institutional and legislative societies.       A crucial part of the design process included the merging of programs,  including a theater,  laboratories,  temporary housing,  public cafe,  exhibition space,  libraries and a maker spaces.
Since the building was meant to represent a greener future,
the entire structure was designed to be locally-sourced timber. The building houses no HVAC system and functions entirely on natural ventilation mechanisms. The orientation of the building allows for passive cooling and operable windows allow for active climate management. The roofs are lined in pvu units that generate energy,  and aim to sustain a net-zero environment.
