Construction is currently underway on the UCLA Faculty Center Seismic and Infrastructure Improvements Project and re-imagines existing mid-century modern patio spaces originally built in 1959. Building on the original indoor-outdoor connections at the Faculty Center, the East Patio and California Terrace are re-envisioned as highly flexible outdoor rooms for dining and events. New landscape, paving, lighting and finishes enhance inside- outside connections with large-scale glass doors from indoor rooms to adjacent garden spaces.
MRY has been selected to program and design highly flexible learning environments in a garden setting to support education programs for a diverse student population including life-long learners, professional accreditation, language skills and vocational training. The project significantly expands the campus fabric and connectivity and is a critical step toward meeting their ambitious Climate Action Plan goals of Net-Zero by 2050.
