M. HART ADDITION
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO
The University of New Mexico Law School addition is a 34,000 square
foot extension to provide additional classrooms and moot courtrooms,
professors, offices, an expanded administration area and a new legal
clinic. The linear, west-facing site drove the design: the building
has a north-south circulation spine and concrete fins on the west
facade which result in north-facing glazing for sun control. The circulation
spine is a daylit interior street which links the existing building
to the new; the daylighting is achieved through caoted sloped glazing
which provides light without increasing heat gain. The project creates
a new identity and entry for the legal clinic, an important and unique
part of education at UNM's Law School. A new main entry to the Law
School controls circulation (all visitors must pass by the entry desk
at the administration area), promotes wayfinding, provides a main
elevator which links the three levels of the existing school and creates
an image for the Law School.
