Galileo's Pavilion

The Galileo Pavilion, located on the Johnson County Community College campus, is a response to the goals of the JCCC Center for Sustainability combined with the need for additional classrooms at the ever-expanding college. It is a unique opportunity to create an inspired learning space which also serves as an information center for the campus and the community at large. The Galileo Pavilion will become a landmark for JCCC's sustainable initiatives, acting as a node from which students and the public can interact and learn of the institution's environmental integrity that extends to every corner of the campus.

 

The new building is not simply one among many, but an icon that leads the rest of the campus by example. The interior spaces function as classrooms, student lounge/coffee bar, and interactive display space. The facade of the pavilion is clad in slate panels which are reclaimed chalkboards from regional school districts. Other design features include the use of passive heating and cooling systems such as thermal mass, rainwater harvesting, living wall and green roof trays in addition to active systems such as photovoltaics and a wind turbine. The Galileo Pavilion is expected to be Studio 804's fifth LEED Platinum and third Passivhaus certified building.
