Architect: HKS

The architectural design of the EDS Corporate Offices required a three-story segment of the office building to span 176 feet over the boulevard servicing the rest of the campus. Catenary trusses with light vierendeel trusses to balance the sway of the catenaries were identified as the most inexpensive and architecturally pleasing solutions. Both the Architect and owner liked the visual expression of the catenary trusses so much that they redesigned the interior atrium to architecturally express the interior trusses.
