La Kretz Hall

California State University, Los Angeles

Los Angeles, California



This new, 106,000-SF laboratory facility, located across from the existing Biological Sciences building, forms a consolidated science zone within the campus. This helps to unify the previously dispersed science programs and create a collegial environment among its users, which include chemistry, biology, allied health, and geology departments.

The three-story project is primarily devoted to wet-lab uses, with fume hood intensive space and instructional spaces. The facility includes a Van de Graaff linear accelerator, veterinary science facilities, greenhouses, and an observatory.
