Visual Arts Building

The metal sunshades affixed to the southern and eastern facades of the University of Iowa's new Visual Arts Building feature punched openings that match the shape of the skylight in the atrium and other windows, and are designed to better control the building's interior temperature by reducing by half the amount of natural light that enters the structure.
