ASU Polytechnic Academic District

Mesa, AZ

Five new academic buildings more than doubled the academic space at the Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus creating a unified district on a formerly spread-out campus. The new facilities provide laboratory and classroom space for engineering and science related programs. Integrated with three existing buildings to create a cohesive complex, the new buildings are configured around three courtyards and linked by a series of open-air atriums, portals and arcades, taking advantage of the seasonally temperate climate for exterior circulation. The project achieved LEED Gold certification. In collaboration with RSP Architects.
