The Gensler designed AltaSea project is a campus for innovation situated at City Dock #1 in the Port of Los Angeles. Along the 35 acre-campus, historic buildings and new architecture are woven together via public parks and plazas, and connected to the district’s growing waterfront. The project brings together people to expand science-based understanding of the ocean; incubate and sustain ocean-related businesses; and pioneer new ocean-related education programs. AltaSea inspires its users, visitors, and the creators of the next generation to live a more sustainable life through its research and connection to the ocean.

It was decided to build a Mining Centre in the Engineering department of the Catholic University of Chile, in the San Joaquin Campus. The site faces the wide Vicuña Mackenna Avenue where the elevated metro systems runs through. The initial assignment considered a volume of 6 floors with classrooms, professor rooms, auditorium and a small mining museum. We designed a type of constructed “rock” (option 1).

A serendipitous alignment of program, a compatible historic structure and creativity, have resulted in an environmentally sensitive, high-tech classroom building that is transforming the teaching and learning experience – along with the entire campus – at Columbia Theological Seminary.
The $8.2 million building, named the Vernon S. Broyles Jr. Leadership Center, connects a 20,500-square-foot repurposed historic dormitory built in 1932 with 16,000 square feet of new construction to create what is now the seminary’s primary classroom building and outdoor learning/gathering space. The structure – contemporary yet sensitive to the historic collegiate gothic architecture of the seminary’s other buildings – has become a focal point that anchors a previously nondescript but public corner of the campus.

“Architecture and landscape joined together in the shade of a great pre-existing tree”.
The building is located on the outskirts of Loja town in marked agricultural character. This project relates to a beautiful plot of cultivated land served by an irrigation ditch and a leafy mass. This building is thought to be very suitable for a new program based on consciousness, protection and publicity of the agricultural beliefs in Loja.

Immergas has extended its research and production field to new generation technologies, related to renewable resources exploitation (like solar thermal, photovoltaic and heat pumps); the new Center for Advanced Training contains teaching rooms and showrooms where technicians and professionals may be trained and updated on both implanting and installation technologies tied to productions based on renewable resources. So the building’s outline is that of an “open laboratory”- a space in which one works and is received.
