University of California, San Diego Price Center East
(# 1140)
Images Description Credits
The plan of the UCSD's existing student center was developed with an introverted configuration: a central courtyard bordered with the building's program elements facing inward. The university’s growth necessitated an expansion of the Price Center & our solution was to create an extroverted, highly permeable addition offering many entry points and features like plazas & staircases that engage the street experience.

The 172,000 sf addition creates a living room for the campus. It expands the bookstore, retail space, foodservice, student organizations & reinforces the primary pedestrian circulation paths linking the sides of campus. Its architectural character & multiple entry points transform the surrounding area into a town center - a lively, dense, pedestrian-oriented area with a distinctive urban quality, serving as hub for activities. The project incorporates many sustainable elements in support of the university’s goal of achieving the equivalent of a LEED Silver rating.
