UC Berkeley Lower Sproul wins SCUP’s 2017 Jury’s Choice Award for Outstanding Achievement in Integrated Planning and Design

“In support of SCUP’s commitment to integrated planning, the 2017 jury established this award as its highest honor. The award is given to the built project that most clearly conveys how well-conceived planning strategies can be implemented through successful collaboration between planners, architects, landscape architects and college/university faculty, students, and staff. The award, which can come from any individual category, is selected at the discretion of the jury. It exemplifies the benefits of holistic planning and design, and embodies the best overall integration of community-building, teaching, campus place-making, student life, and environmental stewardship.”

Clay is proud to have been involved the Lower Sproul Redevelopment project at UC Berkeley as the Project Architect and one of the lead designers.  It was his honor and privilege to work with a wonderfully thoughtful array of clients, including: the students, various user groups, the ASUC staff, UCB staff, UCB’s Planning and Capital Projects teams, UCB Architectural Review Board, and the contractors and campus building officials.   The project included a complete renovation of infamous Lower Sproul Plaza, an addition and renovation of the historical MLK Student Union building, and a brand new Eshleman Hall student center.  SCUP’s website.
