The goal of this dynamic design for the UC Irvine Alumni Center is to create a functional, aesthetically-pleasing structure that works in harmony with the existing campus while providing an active hub for alumni activities. The scale of the building gives it distinction from the adjoining housing units and identifies the project as a place of significance and a gateway to return to the campus. A multi-functional plaza encourages alumni to linger beside the library and coffee shop while an additional landscaped plaza provides a connection to the pre-function and conference rooms for social functions/fundraising activities. The UCI Alumni Center is designed to achieve a LEED Silver certification.
