ieranTimberlake architects turned a Rice University campus parking garage into an
extension of a nearby oak grove through ingenious fabrication. The parking garage,
located in Houston, Texas, was transformed from a rough, cast-in-place concrete
structure into a seven-story sculpture.
A custom leaf pattern of four times the normal scale was printed on coated polyethersulfone
(PES) tensile mesh, giving the impression of foliage. The effect is all the more suggestive as it is
printed in a UV-resistant ink in a pale olive green pigment that won't fade.
Large, multistory steel latticework with aluminum frames holding tensioned mesh fabric
panels fit tightly against the garage. But as the building rises above the tree line, the massive
panels begin to warp and twist away from the structure to animate the roofline at the top,
making the building a giant sculpture, the largest on campus.
The mesh screening allows the structure full natural ventilation and eliminates any need for
mechanical venting systems, keeping energy use down. According to the project management
and design installation company, Structurflex LLC, the printed leaf motif skin took one day to
install and the ramp was fully operational the day after.
This project was an Outstanding Achievement winner in IFAI's 2018 International
Achievement Awards competition. -B.W.
