California State University, San Bernardino completed a "topping off" ceremony in early August for its new Center for Global Innovation building. This occasion marked the last steel beam placed during the construction phase of the project.
The three-story building will house classrooms and administration offices for the college, located at the heart of its campus. Using inspiration from a typical town square found in cities around the world, the lobby of the center acts as a home base for students on campus with digital screens, writable surfaces and flexible furniture.
There will also be a variety of indoor and outdoor social and learning spaces, including a rooftop terrace. LPA's integrated team of designers shared in the celebration of the event for the building, which is scheduled to open in 2019.
