Ronald Tutor Hall

University of Southern California

Los Angeles, California

University of Southern California's Ronald Tutor Hall is a five-story, 103,000 GSF engineering facility that accommodates undergraduate and graduate studies in information technology, bioengineering, and nanotechnology. The flexible space features labs and research areas extending from a central-core plan as well as the Viterbi Museum.

The modular lab spaces are modeled after those at national government laboratories to give students and professors the most current configurations and equipment. Elements particular to the university environment include elevated safety levels and collaborative work areas. The building defines a new campus yard and identity for the campus with a grand entry lobby opening onto the main landscaped courtyard envisioned as an outdoor academic court to encourage and foster collaboration.
