The architect’s vision for this competition entry was ‘clean and white with the feel of wood.’  Towards this end, the model was made almost entirely of wood, painted sheer white to ensure it retained the wood-grain texture.  The designers used a clear glass curtain wall (acrylic on the model) to bring the feel of the surrounding park into spaces assigned for study within the building.  The red portion is accented with light, drawing the eye to the focal point of the design.
