The College of Education (COE) at California State University, San Bernardino was previously operating out of several buildings. Designed to blend with the modern aesthetics of the existing buildings, the new COE—a 140,000-square-foot, three-story structure—brings all the college's programs and functions together in one facility. Located just off the Camphor Walk—a main pedestrian passage through campus—this state-of-the-art facility energizes the university and provides a new home to future educators.

Sustainable elements for this project, which performs 20 percent better than Title 24, include the demonstration Desert Garden that reduces irrigation requirements by 80 percent, building facades that demonstrate solar strategies based on orientation and Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) panels were fabricated locally to reduce transportation pollution.
