Kresge College, UC Santa Cruz, California (1971): One of the residential colleges at UC Santa Cruz, Kresge is located in a redwood forest on the edge of campus. Designed by Charles Moore and William Turnbull, the college is intended to be a non-institutional alternative to the traditional type: its several buildings are assembled irregularly along a twisting pedestrian street broken up by a series of outdoor “piazzas” in the manner of an Italian hill town.
The intent behind looking at this precedent was to have the students consider how buildings might be sited in the rugged topography of Paradise.
