Best Educational Project
Grand Award
New Life Sciences Building, Irvine Valley College
Irvine, CA
Builder: SJ Amoroso Construction
Architect/Interiors:
Dougherty + Dougherty Architects, LLP
Judges Statement:
This LEED Gold project stems from the desire to create a building that reflects the environmental sensibilities of the campus. A laboratory
is foremost a functional platform for hosting the science curriculum. The relationship between labs, support spaces and common areas link the design together.
Demystifying the sciences is the great equalizer and will ultimately raise the quality of education. This necessitates that the building invite the student to explore, igniting
a passion for science. Discovery is about the moments in between; between classes, between colleagues. Providing opportunities for interaction ensures that education
goes beyond the walls of the classroom. Sustainable strategies reflect the scientific curriculum, and environmentally responsive building design concepts are integrated
into the course of study.
