University of Pennsylvania Walnut St. EEWS Exterior Residential Wall Construction

  • City, State: Philadelphia, PA
  • Architect: Erdy McHenry Architecture, LLC
  • Finished Cladding Material: Aluminum Composite, Aluminum Plate, Profiled Aluminum
  • System Type: Rainscreen

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.
