Client: Del Mar College
Location: Corpus Christi, Texas
The new Emerging Technologies Addition is added to the South of the existing Emerging Technologies Building at the Del Mar College West Campus. The addition contains adult education lab and classrooms, health care lab, general education classroom, a new robotics lab, a multipurpose room, private offices, simulator room, a staff wellness center, multipurpose resource center, and various student areas, and collaboration spaces. As the building was added to the south, the rhythm of the existing arcade was extended. Windows were added to this addition, and were scalloped into the brick, which matches the brick of the Del Mar West campus. An important connection, both literally and figuratively, was created with the Health Science Center building. The concave entrance on the East side of the building was a reflection of the concavity of the Health Science Center. Also a student/staff connection between the Health Science Center Complex and the Emerging Technologies building was created.
