The renewal of the Software Engineering Institute's interior spaces builds upon the original design while refreshing the character of the space using light, form and fabrication technology reflective of the Institute's cutting edge mission. The project was driven by mandated increases in security for visitors. The sculptural geometry of the desk was shaped using integrated design and fabrication software to accommodate the need for many monitors and to encourage transactions at the sign-in areas (at the front and tail ends of the desk).
