The Health and Sciences Innovation Building (HSIB) is a new facility at the University of Arizona, designed by CO Architects. The façade features a TerraClad sunshade that is integrated into the glass curtainwall to block the intense desert sunlight from entering the building through the eastern-facing windows. The 12” x 60” twisted terra cotta panels feature a raked texture and the adobe dark red color of the custom terra cotta louvers was achieved by mixing a combination of clays, minerals, and stains with water.
