Plans to create a unified and redesigned campus in San Francisco are becoming more concrete with each passing day.

As we reported earlier, the college selected Chicago-based Studio Gang to design the expanded campus. (Read more.)

In early March the team, led by Jeanne Gang, made a visit to CCA, which involved extensive tours of both campuses; meetings with faculty and staff; a presentation to the Board of Trustees; and a sustainability workshop that brought together trustees, alumni, faculty, students, and experts from the Rocky Mountain Institute and Atelier Ten.  

A video crew from Spirit of Space was also on hand to document the process and interview key participants. (See photo.)

The next few months will be exciting as we continue our engagement with Studio Gang. Their process has been open, creative, collaborative, thoughtful, and thorough. The team will return in April as they continue their "discovery phase."
