As the growing student population at University of California, Santa Barbara exceeded existing classroom capacity, there was a strong need for the new Interactive Learning Pavilion, which promotes experiential learning in five lecture halls, three active learning spaces, and 20 flexible classrooms.

The new heartbeat of campus, the building is a porous structure with many exterior gathering spaces that welcome all to enter and explore. Inspired by its natural surroundings, the architecture and material palette take advantage of the climate and echo local geological conditions. Ultimately, the building establishes a welcoming new place for social interaction and innovation at UCSB.
