Project description

Adaptive Architects in conjunction with Architekton and the City of Mesa developed programming criteria for three potential college tenants. Adaptive developed space utilization drawings demonstrating potential uses coordinated with a detailed building program. A challenge was to integrate three different college needs with a variety of programs ranging from undergraduate pre-medical and pre-dental, applied engineering, interactive mixed media, business, education and graduate degree programs. The building required substantial infrastructure improvements and development of classroom and laboratory space, administrative areas/offices and student interaction space all within the constraints of existing building components.
