Join AIA East Bay for a tour of COTE Top Ten Winner, Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation. Designed by Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects, this project was conceived by the College of Engineering as an interdisciplinary hub for students and teachers from across the university who work at the intersection of design and technology.
Founded on the conviction that design can help address some of society’s most pressing challenges, the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation at UC Berkeley, is devoted to introducing sustainable design innovation at the center of engineering education and university life. It is designed as both a collaborative, project-based educational space and a symbol to the region of the University’s commitment to sustainable innovation.
By the end of this presentation, attendees will…
- See demonstrations of collaboration in built form; a campus-wide design competition for wall and ceiling finish panels.
- Learn about designing educational spaces for both flexibility and performance.
- See how to incorporate architectural expressions of green principles for all to see and experience.
- Learn how to design and build an institutional building in two years; Learn a delivery method with fast-track scheduling and select design-build trades.
