Description: This unique project, a 70,000 sf facility on the historic, Frank Lloyd Wright-designed campus of SC Johnson Wax, includes exhibition space, a new employee dining facility, and additional employee amenities such as a fitness center, store, bank, and coffee shop. The exhibition area commemorates an expedition to Brazil made by Sam Johnson in 1998 and features the airplane he used, which is a replica of the plane H.F. Johnson used in the 1930s to research carnauba wax trees in Brazil. Cosentini coordinated the selection of devices/equipment for public areas, so that they blend seamlessly with the museum architecture.  Fortaleza Hall (LEED Gold Certified) and the Community Building are linked by a glazed atrium and lift lobby, which connects via an undercroft to the matrix of tunnels that form the principal communications network through the campus.
