About the event

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity arranged just for SDC students…

“Project Presentation: Kresge College Renewal at the University of California, Santa Cruz”

Located in a sprawling redwood forest in northern California, Kresge College has been a bold experiment in student-driven education since 1971. Its original “hill town” campus by Charles Moore and William Turnbull created a bright, playful village within the forest, anchored by a winding pedestrian street, where students could test out new ways for living and learning in community. Today, as the College approaches fifty, Studio Gang’s renewal project, currently under construction by Swinerton Mass Timber, aims to reinvigorate the Kresge campus as a vital, experimental environment for education—still independent-minded and free-spirited, but no longer so isolated and inward-facing.

This presentation is open to SDC students ONLY – participation is through registration link emailed to students several days prior to presentation, but mark your calendars now.  Hope to see you all there!
