American Heritage Center
In 1993, architect Antoine Predock completed the University of Wyoming American Heritage Center and Art Museum to house the university’s manuscript and rare book collections and archive. Predock enlisted Zahner to assist in creating a rainscreen facade system with a custom copper patina. Zahner utilized similar processes as those innovated within the aerospace industry. Planar, flatseam panels were attached to the building facade in much the same way that panels on a commercial aircraft are seamlessly stitched together.
