NORTHWEST MEETING HALL
University of Oregon
The main structural element, the truss, is designed to lift the roofing three feet above the top of the wall to create clear story windows on the north and south sides. The truss is an irregularly shaped structure with the top structural member spanning beyond the crest of the roof to create a light monitor on the south facing facade. The roofing material over the truss is deep red aluminum sheeting reminiscent of those seen in the rural parts of Iceland and Scandinavia.
