An adaptive re-use of the existing physical plant building, the Center for Design and Innovation creates a campus resource for hands-on design thinking and making. Including spaces for ideation, rapid prototyping, arts, capstone projects, industry partners and shops, the Center supports inter-disciplinary collaboration and innovation.

Our design transforms the existing concrete building, wrapping the lower levels in brick and adds a new fourth level to create a welcoming and modern identity. Located on a sloping site, the building provides on-grade access on three levels. The site design expands the academic campus, replacing parking with a plaza and integrated outdoor classroom.

Currently under design, the renovation includes a full seismic upgrade, building and site accessibility upgrades, the addition of an elevator, and is targeting LEED Gold certification.
