Taking place on the top of Vetter Mountain, this project focused on exposed structure. Two scientists occupy the second floor living quarters, while the downstairs encompasses public space through decks and a large lecture hall. Limitations included only being able to touch at the two summits on the mountain, which were separated by a steep hill.The concept of this project is a continuous tube made from standing seam metal that encloses the inside zigzagging plan. In a sense, the building itself is all glass, with perforated steel providing shading and privacy in some areas.
