The new signature gateway to the School of Humanities at UC Irvine is a spectacular and sustainable construction that recently achieved LEED Platinum certification. A number of energy efficient strategies were included, such as three-story light wells for daylighting, high-performance mechanical systems, and occupancy sensors. The building is at once playful and creative while paying respect the tradition of the existing architecture of the campus.
