The American Society of Cinematographers Education Center

Designed to house the ASC staff and be completed in time for their upcoming 100th anniversary, this small office building was conceived as a prefabricated but highly site-specific kit of parts for rapid assembly, sustainability, and affordability. A bolt-together steel frame supports a skin of glass and insulated metal panels, which provide insulation, waterproofing, and interior/exterior finishes in one prefabricated package. A roof monitor brings light deep into the interior, while broad overhangs all around shield occupants from the abundant Hollywood sunshine and reference low-slung midcentury architecture.
