College of Charleston: School of Business & Economics

The architect wanted the building to resonate the characteristics of a typical Charleston property, which often contains piazzas and gardens illuminated with natural light. To achieve this objective, the architect contacted Novum to design a 57 ft. high point supported glass facade that would allow natural light to flow through the building’s main entrance. Tension rods attach to horizontal trusses to support the dead load.
