Stevens Institute CESI
The 45,000 SF Center for Engineering and Science Innovation epitomizes Steven's commitment to training high-performance building engineers. Aspiring to LEED Platinum, the facility advances integrated planning and design; "total" environmental design—merging architecture, landscape, and planning; and emphasizes connections between the campus and neighboring Hoboken. In particular, passive cooling systems will reduce energy use for air conditioning; rainwater collection systems will drastically reduce potable water use; and, a terracotta rain-screen enclosure will provide excellent thermal qualities and air-tightness. This project initiates the Institute's ambitious plans to create a linear park that repurposes the adjoining waterfront.
