The Learning Resource Center is located on the west side of campus and houses campus resources for both students and staff. The plazas and seating areas function as a campus gateway transitioning pedestrians from the expansive parking lot into the campus.
Integral color concrete paving bands elevate to form seatwalls and precast concrete pavers bisect the plaza leading to the building entrances. Seating niches, shaded by California Oak and Strawberry trees, anchor the plaza and reflect the vertical building elevation to the horizontal plane in color and pattern.
The main circulation path into campus runs along the north side of the building adjacent to an existing native garden. Native plants including Wild Lilac, Deer Grass, Currant, and Matilija Poppy are organized in larger geometric massings transitioning the native garden to the building and site.
