Thank you to LS3P, designers of R2I2 (Richland Two Institute of Innovation), for providing the Revit file for our students to create this video.
A 21st Century Learning Environment
Our innovative space was designed with flexibility in mind. R2i2 can adapt to changing programs, evolving technologies, and future expansion. Classrooms have garage door access and offer open areas for project-based student activities. There is access to outdoor learning areas, and an “incubator” space that allows students an opportunity to interface with business partners and professionals to work on real-world business challenges.
The unique design includes many strategies for sustainability. Some of these features are a rooftop solar array, shading devices on the east and south façade, a solar tree and wind generator, an underground cistern, and a solar hot water thermal system. Our campus also includes a stand-alone “Next Energy Lab” with a solar farm.
