The Board of Trustees of California College of the Arts (CCA) has selected Studio Gang (led by Jeanne Gang, pictured) to design our expanded campus in San Francisco. The decision follows an international architect search and a two-year planning process to address the future of the college.

In collaboration with Studio Gang over the next five years, the college aims to create a campus that will be a model of sustainable construction and practice and will unite our 2,000 students, 600 faculty members, 250 staff members, and 34 academic programs on one campus in San Francisco.

CCA's new, reimagined San Francisco campus will reshape art and design education and practice while strengthening the arts and cultural ecosystem of San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. Our community of artists will enrich and invigorate the region while helping to reclaim the city's artistic history and contribute to its future.

At a special meeting on November 15, the trustees enthusiastically supported the architect selection advisory group's recommendation of Studio Gang from among the three short-listed firms announced in October. The other firms were Allied Works and Michael Maltzan Architects.

The architect selection process was thorough, involving significant input from CCA faculty, students, staff, and alumni.
