Civil + Structural Engineer features two UCLA buildings CO is currently renovating that were designed by pioneering architect Paul Revere Williams. The new design for the La Kretz Botany Building encourages connection to the adjacent botanical gardens with modernized spaces for research, learning and teaching. The modernized Psychology Tower will better support opportunities for collaboration while maintaining its historic character and serving the campus far into the future.
Last week, CO celebrated the grand opening of the new lobby for the UCLA La Kretz Botany Building. The reimagined lobby space creates sight lines to the adjacent garden and brings to life a mosaic design from the building’s original architect, Paul Williams.The full renovation project will consolidate much of the EEB department within the Botany Building and make departmental research and teaching visible to the greater UCLA community.
