Campus Design and Facilities

Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo Studio: UC Santa Barbara Tower Mall

As part of Professor Omar Faruque’s Landscape Architecture Design Theory Focus Studio (winter 2009), undergraduate students from Cal Poly, SLO were asked to prepare a design solution for the Tower Mall.

The Tower Mall is part of the Campus Plan for UC Santa Barbara (2006) is a vision for the physical features of the Campus. The central goal of this Plan is to provide a coherent system of open space that is appropriate for a respected University and which facilitates communication and access among all parts of the campus.

The Plan recommends the early implementation of four key spaces which establish the framework for developing the campus. One of these key spaces is the Tower Mall: a grand entry space leading from Mesa Road to Storke Plaza.
