Join the lead architect and design engineer on a tour of this 40,000 square foot, LEED Gold certified Media Production Center. The project is a combination of large film and animation studios with classrooms and workshops on an urban campus. As the first new building for Columbia College, it fortified the school's competitive edge in film-making and animation, as well as highlighting the college's design-forward identity. The project was awarded a Citation of Merit for the AIA's 2010 Design Excellence Awards.

Topics will include:
- How creative cooling techniques respond efficiently to the intense lighting loads of building's production spaces
- How computational fluid dynamics (CFD) helped the design team find efficient HVAC solutions
- How the design team determined the power, audio and visual requirements of the building, and coordinated the design and routing of raceways through architecturally significant spaces

Speakers During Tour:
Sachin Anand,
Principal, dbHM
Margaret Cavenagh, Senior Managing Architect, Studio Gang Architects

Please meet the speakers in the student lounge of the Media Production Center for introductions and a brief overview prior to the tour.
