POMONA COLLEGE MILLIKAN SCIENCES HALL
Replacing a physics and math lab that has run its course, Pomona College sought out an integrated building and landscape that would go beyond conventional sustainability goals. In partnership with EHDD Architects, we worked transparently with a diverse set of client groups to develop a plan that synthesized stormwater management, educates in the landscape, and enhances the already strong sense of community present on campus. Landscape strategies illustrate the movement of water from building to landscape, utilizing rain gardens and drought tolerant species. The courtyard incorporates an outdoor classroom and interactive physics equipment used by faculty and students in their studies. The project achieved LEED Platinum certification.
