Kresge College, U. C. Santa Cruz--page 1 (of 3)

Charles Moore
1972-74



This residential college, built among dense woods, is comprised of student housing, classrooms, commons, and service buildings. While the exterior view is natural terra cotta, the facades facing the pedestrian "street" are primarily white painted stucco. The "street" is about 1000 feet long, makes a sharp "L," and twists upward to an octagonal eating hall and meeting room. This street meanders and no building aligns with its neighbor.
