The fencing is the facade for this expansion to the Graduate Studies Campus at the California College of the Arts. Expanded aluminum mesh forms an open scrim-like wall at the street’s edge. Behind the mesh skin are two pre-engineered steel buildings that house sixty-eight individual artist studios, classrooms, administrative offices and exhibit spaces. The open space between the buildings forms a courtyard with shade trees and outdoor workshops. This project is connected to the previously completed Graduate Studios project and creates a combined 50,000 square foot Graduate Studies campus.
