Clark Pacific and LPA, Inc. received this award for the College of Education at CSU San Bernardino. Located in the high desert, this school building matches its environmental context. Desert landscaping allows a natural site aquifer to cover all irrigation needs, and glass-fiber-reinforced concrete (GFRC) panels ensure low maintenance. Smooth-textured, integrally colored panels shape the concave entrance, and vertically fluted panels form the classrooms. Solar strategies include fin-protected openings, fritted glass, overhangs, and use of daylighting.
