DIALOG unveils net-zero MacKimmie Complex design at University of Calgary
Made primarily by glass and concrete, metal photovoltaic panels and stainless steel cladding create a ‘breathing’ façade that uses natural light as a building material and allows the buildings to respond in harmony with the natural capital of wind, sun, and soil. The new link flows through the existing structure and leads purposefully to extended study spaces for quiet reflection and special access to newly accessible views of the surrounding campus. | Photo: DIALOG
