Natural sunlight floods the rooms of the nearly finished Arts and Humanities wing, with some boasting floor-to-ceiling windows. Solar overhangs meant to conserve energy and protect from the sun’s harshest rays are attached just above the windows on the exterior.
On a tour of the new wing, James Rogers pointed to the various windows that allow sunlight in and to the windows on the doors and walls of classrooms.
“For this project there are two central things we wanted to emphasize: transparency and natural light,” Rogers said. “We want to be able to see all the learning that’s going on.”
