Milken Institute School of Public Health

Close to two hundred years after being chartered by Congress, George Washington University forges on in its ambitious trek to graduate forward-thinking students aiming to be the leaders of tomorrow. Subscribing to the notion of sustainable design, the university's new addition features a seven-story open interior composed of concrete and bamboo panels - achieving an urban aesthetic with the added comfort of LEED platinum certification. The clever use of concrete intertwined with wooden panels make for quite a challenge during installation, however, the tight radius through the building was the biggest difficulty to overcome.  The main structure - comprised almost entirely of concrete - hosts a unique contrast between the cold staunc...

Unique acoustic Glas

INNOVATIE MATERIAL GLASIO slab is a porous material made of small crystal glass parts joined together by heat. The slabs are joined together by heat and don‘t contain any additives such as fillers and binders.   ACOUSTIC It is acoustic wall panelling with maximal sound absorption coefficient on medium frequency where its absorptive ability exceeds 90% of impact sound energy. These frequency bands (especially octave bands 500Hz and 1Hz) are the key factor for good intelligibility.   COLOURING A basic range of colours was chosen to use in modernor historical interiors in timeless shades typical of crystal glass. When necessary, the shades could be mixed and create new and unique combinations. It is recommended... More
