Copper System: Prepatinated, profiled copper panel system

Rectangular flat seam copper wall panels of different sizes cover the curving wall. For the first time, and at the time unique to this project, a proprietary process of artificial patination was employed. This process provided the architect and the university with a green patina at the completion of construction.
