Lititz Watch Technicum
The building was designed by renowned architect Michael Graves, who incorporated Amish-style influences in the architecture for Lititz Watch Technicum. The building was completed in June 2001, and is comprised of a silo flanked by two barn-like structures. Because the development serves as a watch-making training school, elements such as classrooms, a library, a cafeteria and other academic amenities were included into the design.
A 40 foot tall timber frame feature occupies 441 sq. ft. of the interior entrance and was hand-crafted from Douglas fir. The stone walls use native Pennsylvania fieldstone in a 50/50 blend of earth tones and grays. Standing seam arched metal roofing systems are used on the barn-like portions of the structure.
