Bridging to Sustainability: The JHU Center for Sustainable Living
Team: De CaSo Engineers
Program: Civil and Systems Engineering
Our design team was tasked with developing Levering Hall, the Glass Pavilion, and the surrounding terraces to house the Johns Hopkins Center for Sustainable Living. Our team believes that sustainable living begins with sustainable building, and is therefore committed to creating design solutions that utilize renewable and recyclable materials and provide a meaningful positive benefit to the university community. To the greatest extent possible, all new construction was designed using mass timber in conjunction with thin steel members. This promoted the development of innovative design details to create structural forms that are well-suited to timber’s material properties.
