Spotlight: Cypress College Veterans Resource Center, Veterans Memorial and Student Activities Center

The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) and Student Activities Center (SAC) project consolidates student organizations, support programs, recreation and a Veterans Memorial into a unified complex of cultural significance. The project addressed the unique program needs and acknowledged the existing site conditions of building structure, major campus utilities, and landscape. Cypress College’s rich architectural heritage of late 1960’s brutalism and modernist style informed the design response by acknowledging human scale and the history of the campus, while looking forward with fresh ideas.
