Designed to meet a longstanding commitment by a Community College built on Salt River Pima - Maricopa Indian Community land, the design of the Scottsdale Community College Business School and Indigenous Cultural Center utilized saguaro ribs imbedded into tilt panels to create not only a defining feature for this project, but also create pride and equity. A teaming effort between Architekton, Suntec, and Okland, this project focuses greatly on the possibilities both physically and economically of using tilt-panels in higher education projects as well as serving as a case study using tilt as the mediator to help define a new Southwest Native vernacular.
