When Colorado State University asked architectural firm Studiotrope to design a sleek, modern glass cube to serve as a new student study space for its Morgan Library expansion, it also required that the building achieve a minimum of LEED Silver accreditation. Studiotrope chose SageGlass from SAGE to achieve this goal. SageGlass is electronically tintable dynamic glass that maximizes daylight and outdoor views in buildings while controlling glare and heat gain. The glass can darken or clear on demand or automatically using light sensors. It is installed in the entire two-story 24x45-foot western curtain wall of the building to tame exposure to the sun for occupants.
