From ground up, the new Hyperloop Desert Campus rises over the landscape as a landmark that stares into the future. The rising movement of the rooftop allows the building to shelter the multiple facilities of the Hyperloop Headquarters.
The project unfolds the dry desert ground to create a shaded space, which is also protected from the area’s harsh weather. To do so, it uses several bio-climate stratergies that work in a sustainable way with the surroundings, making the campus as eco-friendly as possible. Taking adventage of the level changes to lower temperatures during the day, and keeping it during the night, the overall energy consumption is kep to the minimun. Furthermore, the building is equipped with a wide surface of solar panels, that supplies electricity to the building.
The Hyperloop Desert Campus also imcorporates Las Vega’s most iconic trademarks: the billboard. The facade features relevant information about the Hyperloop project and this will serve both researchers and tourists in the complex.
