PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project focuses on improving the sustainability of the 247 acre campus to make the campus more walkable, and bikeable, designing a shift from a vehicular orientation to one that encourages pedestrian, bicycle and transit use. The use of indigenous plant materials, natural water retention and filtration, low maintenance landscaping are the site-design strategies. Phase one of the project includes a site design for Art and Design School Building (RGSC) by Tadao Ando. The building is called the Gate of Creation, a $34.5 million project encompassing 94,000 square feet (8,719 square meters), which includes spaces for design, research, teaching and exhibition, as well as 22 laboratories and workshops. Phase 2 of the project addresses a) the campus threshold and related security issues, b) a dynamic plaza space that ties together a future performing arts center and a future joint campus/ community fitness complex, c) another plaza space at the heart of the campus that creates a connection between the Campus Student Center and the Rectoria, the seat of the school administration, and d) reclamation of a central green space that allows for more programmed usage. SWA provides a proper landscape backdrop to what is considered one of the most significant architectural buildings in all of Latin America, while also helping the university move its campus to a higher level of sustainability.
