IPC's Progress

So far, my group has been able to meet with IPC's department head, Penelope Payne. She expressed to us she would love a open floor plan for their offices. She also gave us a long list of needs for the space. Right now we are working on meeting her needs in a open floor plan. We are still working on the layout.

My partner and I really want to explore the idea of green design for the International Programs Center. Green buildings are becoming very popular around the world. After analyzing the site we noticed how the site is on a slope. We feel that using the slope in our design to create some sort of green roof or wall would be a great way to enhance the sustainability of the campus and the building.
