The project is a rehabilitation of an 1860s hay barn at the entry to the University of California, Santa Cruz for use as the headquarters of the Center for Agroecology and for public events and programs, such as Community Supported Agriculture. The reconstruction, which was required to meet current codes and aggressive sustainability goals, entailed exhaustive documentation, piece-by-piece deconstruction, painstaking reassembly of the historic structure by weaving together new and old elements, and the incorporation of contemporary program.
