Boston University Center for Computing & Data Sciences

Boston, Massachusetts USA

Project Overview / Detail

IThe Boston University Center for Computing & Data Sciences provides an exceptional workspace in a building that demands attention. Across 19 floors, the $305 million center defies convention, forming an iconic landmark in the Central Campus. The cutting-edge design incorporates remarkable architecture, state-of-the-art resources, an environmentally friendly approach, and spacious, adaptable learning spaces.

The exterior profile captivates attention with cantilevers that soar above the campus and the Charles River, resembling a towering pile of books - as described by the leadership of Boston University.

Specialized Metal Fabricators fabricated and Ferguson Neudorf Glass installed 88, 291 square feet of Reynobond® 4mm FR Composite Material in Brite Mirror and a custom Colorweld® 500 Russet Pearl finish to achieve both aesthetic and performance targets. The material is lightweight, durable, and consists of two sheets of coil-coated aluminum laminated on both sides of a core material. It is highly formable and integrates seamlessly into curtain walls, providing an ideal solution to this boundary-pushing build.
