California State University Bakersfield Fine Arts Center
(# 383)
Images Description Credits
California State University Bakersfield’s new Fine Arts Center fulfills the University’s need for a dedicated arts complex to serve their growing visual arts programs.

Independently located in the new Humanities northeast quadrant; it takes full advantage of the local climate by providing a variety of indoor and outdoor studio, lab and display spaces for ceramics, sculpture, drawing, painting, digital arts and printing.

Organized around a central courtyard, the ceramics, sculpture and printing studios open to a large covered service yard to the south, doubling the usable working space. Each studio features generous northern day lighting as well as extensive covered walkways.

Materials such as the sandblasted CMU and painted hardie board and steel were selected for their simple industrial aesthetic and durability. The project exceeds the CSU’s mandate to meet sustainability equivalent to LEED silver.
