UNLV Fine Arts Pavilion

.

The Fine Arts Pavilion was conceived as a research and demonstration facility where appropriate passive and active solar technologies for the United States Southwest could be tested and displayed. This pavilion would also be used to showcase student work from the UNLV School of Architecture and the Fine Arts College. Among its strategies the pavilion counts the use of daylighting, external shading, a roofpond for passive heating and cooling, and direct gain for auxiliary heating. An off-grid PV installation, rainwater collection, and solar distillation were also considered for this facility.

The primary goal of this project was to demonstrate UNLV’s strong commitment to sustainable development in the Southwest by promoting appropriate technological solutions.
