University of California Master Plan, Santa Barbara, CA
The Campus Plan was prepared in a process that engaged a broad cross-section of individuals and families whose lives are closely linked with the campus, including students, faculty, staff, administrators, technicians, and consultants. The Plan’s physical form represents a remarkable consensus among these participants about the qualities and values central to campus life.
The Campus Plan establishes a pattern of common open space that can serve as a framework within which individual building projects can be developed. The regulating lines that define the public spaces should be respected. The buildings to be developed should be conceived as a means of creating public spaces as well as containers for academic functions.
UDA has won two awards for this master plan: (1) Congress for the New Urbanism Charter Award, and (2) American Institute of Architects, Pittsburgh Chapter Honor Award, Regional and Urban Design.
