ARC 503 STUDIO. SPRING 2014
The Studio at Cal Poly Pomona’s Architecture Department explores innovative designs for a reinterpretation of the ‘Californian’ lodging experience. At the core of the design challenge is the need to balance issues of culture, sustainability, mobility, and construction. The proposal will address inventive, low cost, eco-friendly alternatives to traditional lodging structures.
The goal is to create a unique experience that appeals to a wider range of park users.
