Citrus College’s Math/Science Building is a space for space replacement of a 1930’s unreinforced brick building. The new building is a reflection of the design committee’s goal of creating a comfortable open environment that encourages interaction and a feeling of community among the typical commuter students. There are two types of interaction space provided: quiet and active. The quiet space is the lobby of the building which is envisioned as group and individual study space. The active spaces are at the center of the cloister that is formed by the buildings, organized around a majestic old oak tree. The second active space is at the center of the faculty offices cluster, which is provided to encourage both faculty conversations and allow comfortable non-territorial faculty/student conferences.
