Description: Undergraduate and graduate students attending the University of Pennsylvania have the luxury of living in a modern residence without the "dormitory" feel. For this newly built facility, EEWS provided a geometrically striking dry joint composite aluminum rainscreen on the end walls and a profiled aluminum rainscreen with integrated accents of aluminum plate sunshades on the long walls. This logistically challenging installation was completed ahead of schedule during the winter months.
