3rd Year Design Studio I - College of E.T. - Cleveland State University
The goal of this project was to design a new college for the growing campus of Cleveland State University. With a push toward sustainability and a lack thereof at the University, this project proposes a College of Environmental Technology located in the North central region of the campus. The building is designed to utilize nearly 100% natural daylight with no need for artificial lighting throughout the day. The building also incorporates shading devices and a green roof system used for insulation and rain water collection.
