The information booth is located on the road that connects three new parking lots and access to the Coussoulis Arena to Northpark Boulevard.
The booth is self-contained and serves as a secondary post for the campus police force. Visibility of the entry road and adjacent parking lots was a critical element in the design. The challenging program required a very small building to accomplish multiple functions on the narrow center parkway. The building integrates the campus mascot sculpture with layered site walls. Yet, the building creates an effective relationship between interior and exterior spaces.
Despite its diminutive size, the success of the design highlights this building as a campus entry landmark. The project received the 2002 Pasadena/Foothill AIA Award or Merit.
