Located on an historic university campus in Pasadena, this 46,000 square foot academic building serves as home to participants of a program of interdisciplinary research that addresses the growth and impact of information science as it relates to all science and engineering practices. Building on the tradition of design excellence found on this campus, both historic and contemporary, the aim of the building’s design was to foster collaboration, research and teaching intrinsic to this study initiative through specifically developed plan and sectional relationships. Balancing the technically refined, steel and glass curtain-wall system, environmentally innovative mechanical systems and poetically subtle site-specific color palette, the building sensitively positions itself within the surrounding garden-like setting of the campus.
