Harvey Mudd College’s McGregor Computer Science Center has won a Southern California Development Forum (SCDF) Honor Award in the Unbuilt / Under Construction category. The forum is comprised of developers, architects, engineers, planners and other land-use parties, and the annual award is given to projects that demonstrate innovation and commitment from both owners and design teams.
At the close of the awards ceremony, over 150 attendees voted on their favorite project among the honorees, and the building was also named the 2020 People’s Choice Award.
The McGregor Computer Science Center is located at Harvey Mudd College, a private undergraduate science and engineering college located in eastern Los Angeles County. The design meets two of the schools pressing needs: new space for its computer science program and a vibrant area for project-based learning. The concept is rooted in strategies that invigorate interdisciplinary collaboration – a key component of Harvey Mudd’s mission as part of the Claremont Colleges. For a science and engineering focused school like Harvey Mudd, the integration of a campus wide makerspace was especially important to nurture the aspirations of their faculty and students, and to showcase their talent. The project will be completed in early 2021.
