University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy - Keller Center

The roof of the Keller Center collects rainwater and stores it in a 15,000-gallon cistern tank. Rainwater is filtered, and pumped throughout the building for reuse in toilets and landscaping reducing demand on Chicago’s overburdened storm system. The clean energy-producing Photovoltaic roof system is relocatable and will allow Harris Public Policy the flexibility for future growth by enabling a rooftop expansion to the south. Materiality and the expression of natural elements is consistent from the interior pallet to the exterior. The rooftop addition was clad in a 2 / 2 natural zinc metal rainscreen system that produces a protective patina, self-heals, and has the resiliency of a 100-year material.
