Malachowsky Hall deflects the Florida glare with an aluminum façade and electrochromatic glazing
From Matthew MaraniGo to https://www.archpaper.com/author/matthewmarani/, Architect’s Newspaper – “Designed by Bohlin Cywinski JacksonGo to https://www.archpaper.com/tag/bohlin-cywinski-jackson/ and Walker Architects, Malachowsky Hall will feature a textured façade that protrudes and folds to create swatches of light and shadow all along its considerable length. The origamilike creases provide for some very idiosyncratic window shapes, which should quickly endear the building to the university community once it opens in the summer of 2023. The purpose of the exercise was to ascertain how the prefabricated façade panels from N-RG Cladding would perform on-site, in sunny, humid north Florida. “We desired a seamless panel and N-RG suggested making the panel completely out of aluminum plate to ensure that we would achieve the desired finish and also meet the dimensional tolerances without additional joints, due to material size limitations with other cladding options,” noted the design team. Once the mock-up was approved, N-RG prepared a full set of shop drawings, which Bohlin Cywinski Jackson reviewed prior to fabrication of the panels.”
