Big Chiller Blues


Ten thousand square feet of glass tiles in shades of blue clad two outer walls of the Austin Convention Center parking garage. This structure also houses a chiller connected to the Austin Energy district cooling system, which air conditions a number of downtown buildings. The tile pattern was designed by Ann Adams, an artist who generally works in fiber, to reflect the cooling function of the building.
