Designed by the Yazdani Studio of CannonDesign, the center will be home to critical research in solar science, climate science, energy, biofuels, decomposable plastics, water and environmental resources, ecology and biosphere engineering and more. The building will unite experts from across the physical sciences, life sciences, and engineering in shared facilities with access to unparalleled instrumentation to advance novel solutions to the most significant environmental sustainability challenges of our time.
The Urbanize LA piece describes the center’s design as “a contemporary three-story structure with an undulating glass facade…the building’s curtain wall system will mask an angular mass timber structure along its northern and western sides, culminating in a rooftop canopy.”
“Designing the Resnick Sustainability Resource Center is a humbling and exciting opportunity for our team. We will be creating a first-of-its-kind science building where the world’s brightest minds will meet to quite literally work to save our planet and its natural environment” said Mehrdad Yazdani, Director of the Yazdani Studio of CannonDesign earlier this year. “This is a project you dream of as a designer. The building and the work it supports will have profound impacts on our world.”
