Join COTE AIA|LA and SOM at Integral Group on January 12 at 7pm for a revealing presentation of SOM’s “Floating Cube” Federal Courthouse, now under construction, in downtown Los Angeles.

The graciously innovative design allows the cubic volume to “float” over a stone base, while being one of the nation’s safest buildings, from bomb threats to earthquakes. This design has also successfully incorporated sustainable features such as a serrated facade that maximizes views and reduces solar heat gain by nearly 50 percent.

SOM’s Steve Zimmerman will lead a discussion on the courthouse project including integration of sustainability measures and LEED, while meeting GSA standards. After the presentation, Integral will lead the group on a tour of their new offices and a discussion of the first LEED Dynamic Plaque installed in LA.
