STUDIO 804 JCCC's strategic plan calls for the College to champion environmental sustainability in curriculum and in the College's infrastructure, transforming the physical campus into a living learning laboratory. With these goals in mind, Galileo's Pavilion was designed to take advantage of the daily and seasonal cycles of nature to passively heat, cool, and daylight the building as well as supply electricity and utility water. The façade of the pavilion is clad in slate panels reclaimed from chalkboards and large glass panels reclaimed from an unfinished building project (not the Studio's) on the Plaza in Kansas City. Other design features include the use of passive heating and cooling systems such as thermal mass, rainwater harvesting, and green roof trays, in addition to energy-producing systems such as photovoltaic panels and a wind turbine. Galileo's Pavilion is expected to be Studio 804's fifth LEED Platinum building. WE CAN FIND A USE FOR THAT. The façade of Galileo's Pavilion on the campus of Johnson Community College is clad in slate panels made from reclaimed slate chalkboards gathered from regional schools throughout the Midwest, and large glass panels reclaimed from a failed building project in Kansas City. Glass, aluminum, and steel are examples of materials that are highly recyclable and have been used extensively in the building. Aluminum and glass are used to create sun control louvers and steel is used for the curtain wall structural frames and numerous interior details. The building also employs passive solar design strategies. Exterior louvers are calculated to block out the intense summer sun while allowing the lower winter sun to penetrate into the spaces, heating the highly polished concrete thermal mass floor.
