A FRONT DOOR FOR THE SCHOOL OF HUMANITIES
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA - IRVINEIRVINE, CA
The Humanities Gateway Building is the home of the UC Humanities Research Institute, occupying offices on the top floor. The building itself serves as a “front door” and reception area to the School of Humanities and will bring under one roof the School’s multidisciplinary centers. Exterior walls of the facade open to extend interior spaces, creating a strong connectivity between the outside and inside. The courtyard, building terraces and light courts create opportunities to extend the learning environment and host events.
