WEATHERHEAD SCHOOL by Gehry Partners, LLC
Designed by Gehry Partners, the Peter B. Lewis Building is a five-storey facility named for the Cleveland philanthropist who donated $36.9 million for its construction. The decentralized design is intended to facilitate informal interaction among faculty and students.The 22 ga stainless steel surface resembles an undulating, unbroken ribbon. Finished in #4 satin, the surface is more reflective than Angel Hair or GB-60 but less diffuse than a mirror-finish.Using the Zahner proprietary flat seam system, each shingle was custom formed to create an interlocking, tessellated pattern.
