Creativity Think Tank at the Heart of a Campus
(# 573)
Category:
Images Description Credits
Context:
•  Location of site in the heart of the campus mandates a significant
   contribution to improve the campus’ urbanism.
•  Respond to dramatic differences in scale and style between Mission-
   style bungalow on one side, and a modernist, multistory academic
   building on the other.

Program/Scope:
•  Scientific Think Tank/Board of Trustees meeting room, large and
   small indoor/outdoor convening/thinking places, 28 office/carrels
   for visiting scientists, forging a connection to  the existing
   structure and landscape
•  Existing Structure Renovation - 2,800 SF; New Structure - 4,400 SF

Budget/Cost:
•  $4.2 million

Special Challenges/Unusual Characteristics:
•  The integration of adaptive-reuse and new construction allow for
   generous outdoor areas that take advantage of the local climate and
   work as extensions of the interior spaces creating a quintessential
   Southern California place.

Solution/Design:
•  The project aims to facilitate a culture of creativity where
   scientists of related and disparate disciplines meet to think about
   space exploration in revolutionary ways
•  The architecture works to make a place of desire that nurtures and
   harnesses creative tension in that pursuit
•  Create a place of interaction and flexibility where “orchestrated
   collisions” create opportunity for unexpected conversation and
   creative thinking
