SMC Campus Quad

Santa Monica College has greatly increased open space on the campus with the addition of this new landscaped area that replaces a number of temporary structures. The quad forms a new center of campus with dramatic landscaping and special features, including two fountains. A main campus walkway through the area is formed with pavers and highlighted with a double row of date palms.

The new quad is environmentally friendly with a unique underground water storage system that captures the storm water and the use of many native water-saving plants. The area has been designed to accommodate a variety of large outdoor campus events and activities. The new Library, Theater Arts Complex, and Humanities and Social Science Buildings face the new quad area creating a central focal point for this portion of the campus. The quad recently won the prestigious Los Angeles Business Council’s 2009 Architecture Awards in the landscape category
