Robert Paine Scripps Forum For Science, Society and the Environment in La Jolla, California by Safdie Rabines Architects

March 27th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Scientists from around the world gather to help advance the study of the oceans, earth, and marine life sciences at this oceanfront conference center located at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. The building is located atop an ocean bluff, with strong winds, western sun, and an existing grove of palms providing the natural context. Responding to these forces without impacting their natural beauty was a driving goal in the design of the project. In addition, the uniquely informal character of the Scripps community, with its clear appreciation of the natural environment and outdoors, became an influential factor in the design. The LEED certified project includes a flexible auditorium space, four oceanfront meeting rooms of varying sizes, a student lounge, and restaurant. The program is broken into several buildings connected by a trellised walkway creating a porous structure that preserves ocean views and breezes for the rest of the campus.
