(Intl. Center for Study of Robotics)
This competition entry was for a campus building to accommodate a complex set of classrooms, laboratories, administrative offices, and support services for an advanced research and degree program. Filling a ravine located adjacent to the main portion of campus, the building’s internal organization allowed for both large Center-wide functions and individual departmental identification. The range of interior spaces was developed for a number of robotic prototypes to be tested within controlled environments but with access to limited outdoor spaces that could serve as experiential extensions.
