FROG Zero

The renovation of the Linde + Robinson Laboratory for Global Environmental Science achieved LEED platinum certification and will become the lowest-energy research lab in the United States.  The 1934 building was originally designed as academic offices and classrooms, but also as an astronomical instrument of building scale.  Renowned artist, architect, engineer, and instrument designer Russell Porter created the Robinson Coelostat as an integral part of the original building and it stands as the precedent for all modern solar telescopes operating today.  During the laboratory building remodel, Loisos + Ubbelohde proposed to reactivate and automate the celeostat. The coelostat will be used to provide daylight into underground laboratories, supply light for a sculpture in the second floor library, and create a large real time projected image of the sun visible in the main corridor of the building. We designed and fabricated the optics and light fixtures for the project.
