The latter, which houses a practice gymnasium, takes design cues from the original structure, albeit on a smaller scale.

The gymnasium, the largest volume, was tucked into a hillside in order to flood administrative spaces with daylight and preserve views of a space frame from a nearby highway.

Stand-alone mock-ups of all enclosure materials were constructed for aesthetic review and quality of workmanship, an exercise that included evaluations by the project's owner, contractor and designer.
