Clerkin & Clerkin Architects worked with CSUN & the Department of Mathematics on concepts for flexible and varied learning spaces which processed through different buildings. The final location is in Live Oak Hall and includes: 10 rooms, 15 offices, 6 Shared TA offices, and 4 flexible rooms to facilitate different techniques, developed by the department, for addressing the critical goal of remedial education. The existing building is over 50 years old, constructed originally as science laboratories. Among the challenges was creating coherent spaces around the existing mechanical shafts of lower floor fume hoods and exhaust systems.
The Mathematic faculty offices and department office were the 2nd phase and were completed in August 2013. This portion includes the campus’s 1st faculty
The project was the focus of a Society of College and University Planner (SCUP) paper describing the challenges of finding and creating spaces to meet an evolving pedagogy. The paper was published in the fall of 2012.
