Tasked with designing a collaborative library for CU Boulder's campus our team built a daring structure with a lot of glass, a 65-foot cantilever and an integrated artistic facade, dubbed "The Explorer". The library houses collections for both business and engineering, as well as encompasses offices, and study facilities. 

This project was followed by the Senior Design Engineering project. Through which I, and a team of other engineers, took this design and made it a reality.

I was tasked with the Electrical and Lighting Design in that course.
