UC Riverside Plant Research 1 – Merit Award

The University of California, Riverside, is a campus deeply linked with the agricultural and natural sciences. This heritage is academically and physically represented with a district of greenhouses on the main campus, just blocks from the central University mall. Plant Research 1 continues this campus tradition with a new greenhouse and research building. The design is driven by the planning and organizational module of the greenhouses, inspired by the pragmatism of the historical greenhouses.

“The building concept and form are strong and the limited materials palette reinforces the concept – a very considerate and innovative solution for a highly energy-intensive building.”
