Terra5 Rainscreen Sunscreen at University of Iowa Elevation

U of Iowa Psych & Brain Sciences - Iowa City, IA

For the new Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences building at the University of Iowa, BNIM Architects incorporated an engineered Terra5 rainscreen and sunscreen assembly supplied by Cladding Corp.  For this project, a grey color pallet was selected in order to coordinate with the overall campus master plan. In addition to the exterior rainscreen facade, this installation also included a unique and defining sunshade detail at the top portion of the windows, providing bot thermal and aesthetic elements to the building's design.
