The Lory Student Center at CSU - Fort Collins, CO
The Lory Student Center really serves as the heartbeat for student life at Colorado State University. Northern Colorado has more days of sunshine than nearly any other place in the country. There's sunshine all the time. Even during the winter, it's great weather. The sunshine is one of the main reasons for choosing View Smart Windows. With this much sunshine, there's heat and glare. CSU wanted to maintain the views and have control over the amount of sun coming into the space. The adaptive technology of the smart windows allows the building to moderate itself. Typically, everything is automatic, with light sensors tracking the sun and the glass automatically tints as needed. The tint of the glass can also be manually adjusted for zones or individual windows by using a mobile device to make the space more flexible and more usable.
