The UC Irvine Contemporary Arts Center exemplifies attributes most desired in both the sense of traditional building design and the promise of the design-build delivery process. The architecture is both expressive and contextually based and incorporates advanced technology with time-tested sustainability measures. Responding to a complex program and constrained site, the project enhances the campus, elegantly resolves functional requirements, continues to delight the users and gives the owner an incredible value.
