Abstract:
The newly constructed Sol Plaatje University Student Resource Centre in Kimberley, South Africa, has a design like the cut of an inverted diamond. To address the extreme conditions of the Northern Cape and provide climate control, the building is encased in an insulating, cast-in-place concrete shell with an angular, origami-like roof and a thermally active building system.
