A Sustainable Campus: Central Arizona College by SmithGroup

A Sustainable Campus: Central Arizona College by SmithGroup | Social Network for Logistics & Transport | Scoop.it

This new campus aims to create a unique and authentic identity for the growing Central Arizona College in the higher education marketplace while creating a highly sustainable prototype.


Masterplanned for significant growth in the next twenty years, three buildings and a central plant represent an initial phase that will create a campus design language for future development to follow.

Conceptually rooted in its historic agricultural roots and Native American legacy, the structures are conceived as a series of honest ‘academic sheds.’ Deep overhangs let interior academic spaces flow outdoors seamlessly. Corten steel and rammed earth create the primary exterior language eliminating the need for long term maintenance. Structural steel and galvanized acoustical decking create the main interior volumes, while continuous north facing clerestory glazing harvests daylight, coupled with numerous large ‘daylight scoops.'
