University Union Plaza
CAL POLY, SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA
The main university student center, The University Union, was an outdated overly brutalist Architecture 1960’s concrete monstrosity. Cal Poly planned for a major overhaul to open the views, add welcoming atmosphere and smooth pedestrian traffic. A complete demolition and reconstruction involved major coordination between all design disciplines. The outdoor venue included custom structural steel stage cover with integrated sound and lighting systems, complete landscape seat wall integration with club booth setup space. The new space has allowed the university and student clubs to use the outdoor space for athletic events, concerts, and general student gatherings.
