College uses renewable materials in new library

January 01, 2010 |
Los Angeles Valley College

A 93,000-sf Library and Academic Resource Center will replace Los Angeles Valley College's 1960s-vintage library. Pfeiffer Partners Architects designed the building to be consistent with the college's master plan, with its learning clusters and arcade circulation system. To obtain LEED certification, the center will use recycled and renewable materials, such as bamboo. Floors connect through an interior atrium, so daylight can reach the first floor.
