Albano, Leonard D.
The Parallax, an 118,000 square foot, dual-purpose facility, consisting of two academic floors and three residence floors, was designed to meet the challenges of WPI's growing community, in accordance with the International Building Code 12 and 15. Reference design specifications ACI 318, AISC 360-10, and the NDS were also used as guides. An energy-usage analysis was conducted to size, roughly, the building's mechanical system. The project’s focus is the building design process, with emphasis on the architectural-structural relationship and design.
