Overview

Rowan University, Rohrer College of Business / “Threshold” /
35’ x 35’ x 1’ /
Laminated dichroic safety glass, perforated stainless steel, aluminum extrusions, aluminum rods, glass tip elements /
“Threshold” was conceived as a transparent and timeless architectural feature that creates a welcoming beacon and icon for the Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University.
The mercurial reflectivity of dichroic glass gives “Threshold” a feeling of luminous vivacity and a spirit of lightness and optimism. At night, the colorful ensemble glows like a lantern, projecting the spirit of the business school outward in a warm and welcoming gesture.
