For the exterior walls of the Center for Design Research, in order to complement the existing stone language of the Chamney Farm complex, more than 100 tons of stone tailings were reclaimed from Kansas quarry sites. By using stone tailings rather than cutting new stone, natural resources are conserved, thereby reducing the load on landfills. Small and odd-shaped tailings were reclaimed and hand cut into thin stackable pieces used for cladding both interior and exterior walls. To further diminish site waste, all scrap stone pieces from the cladding process were integrated as exposed fill along the north side of the building.
