The project, our first at Langara College, in Vancouver, is conceived as an environmental form, shaped by the natural forces acting upon it. Wind and rain patterns determine the geometries of the curved roof, while wind towers encase the circulation stairs, creating a stack effect that allows the building to breathe organically. The building is heated and cooled geothermally and naturally ventilated, which makes it 71% more energy efficient than the Model National Energy Code.
