CCA’s (California College of the Arts) Plans for Modern Expansion is Out

California College of the Arts (CCA) is building a new campus they say “will create an innovative and vibrant institution in San Francisco that will have a powerful and lasting effect on cultural, social, and environmental issues.” The architecture firm Studio Gang has been commissioned to design a campus that is “flexible, sustainable, interdisciplinary, and ahead of its time” with a new student housing being developed near the San Francisco campus.

Studio Gang Architects have published renders of the highly anticipated California College of the Arts (CCA) campus. Per SocketSite, “the 96,000-square-foot addition would rise up to 57 feet in height, not including the frames for PV arrays atop the three four-story pavilion structures, with art studios, design labs, classrooms and multiple outdoor and maker spaces.”

CCA is located at 1111 8th Street, and its expansion would provide more campus space for their existing student body.

“We are working with Equity Community Builders and Emerald Fund to explore a range of options for the future of our CCA Oakland campus that will honor CCA’s legacy and benefit the greater community once we move,” per CCA representative.

The new expansion includes the development of 520 beds of student housing to rise up to five stories in height on its 188 Hooper Street site, at the intersection of Hooper, Eighth, Carolina and Channel, as newly rendered by Stanley Saitowitz / Natoma Architects below:

The new campus is under construction and is slated to open in the 2021-2022 academic year.
