GSA Field Office
This is a new 275,000-sqft General Services Administration Office Building in Houston, Texas. The narrow plan responds to climate considerations, presenting broad faces to the south and north, and thin faces to the east and west. Concrete walls are sheathed in aluminum shingles that both reflect heat and allow the high thermal mass of the concrete to provide temperature stability for the structure.
