The Yang + Yamazaki Environment + Energy Building (Y2E2) was the first of four buildings Boora completed following the completion of the SEQ Master Site Plan. The building consists of four traditional floor plates that are interconnected through four large atriums. The atriums provide gathering space for the interdisciplinary research teams that are housed at Y2E2 while also bringing daylight and ventilation through the center of the building. Along with integrated building systems the atriums contribute the 50% standard energy reduction achieved by the building design. This high level of integration is also used within the building as a teaching tool for the research teams that are focusing on modern energy and environmental issues such as climate control, land use and conservation, sustainable built systems, and oceans and estuaries.
