49m 33s |
In this episode, Cherise is joined by Paul Tang, Founding Principal and Courtenay Bauer, Principal from Verse Design LA, with independently operated offices in Los Angeles and Shanghai. They discuss Thirty75 Tech in Santa Clara, California.

Thirty75 Tech is an iconic office building in Santa Clara, California. Listen to VDLA's ingenious approach as they optimize the building's leasable square footage, increasing monthly rent without significant cost escalation.

Inspired by the "digital rain" concept from the Matrix films, VDLA transforms the façade into a three-dimensional wonder, featuring prefabricated modules with aluminum louvers. Embark on this captivating audio journey to uncover the fusion of artistry, technology, and architectural excellence in Thirty75 Tech.

Like all projects, this one had its unique challenges and opportunities:
- maximizing the leasable square footage within the given site constraints while keeping building costs in check,
- opportunity to showcase creativity and innovative design skills with the project context and constraints,
- challenge of seamlessly integrating "digital rain" sunshade concept into the overall structure.
and much more!
