AE Interests: The Javits Center transformed the idea of a convention center from a windowless box to welcoming public building through an exposed structural system and space frame components. The Javits Center harmonized steel, concrete, and glass. The green roof serves as a sanctuary for wildlife, stores rainwater, and reduces heat flux into the building.
