The Wellesley College Printing Press is a hypothetical project that provides both production facilities and cultural functions for the campus. The project makes use of traditional and local materials while avoiding replication of the collegiate-gothic tyle. The building is separated into four volumes based on programmatic function; each of which is oriented for maximum daylight exposure. These volumes also respond to different elements in the surrounding site. The building terraces down with the natural topography of the landscape which preserves the views from the Academic Quad to Lake Waban.The project also improves upon the previously existing circulation by creating paths over and through the building that connect Severence Green with the Academic Quad. The building envelope is designed to maximize the south-facing facades by creating a stone screen that allows light to penetrate the volume creating a dynamic lighting effect. These facades are punched with windows that are recessed and angled as a light-control measure.
