From the architect. For the Graduate Studies Campus at the California College of the Arts Jensen Architects / Jensen & Macy Architects designed a fencing façade for the expansion of the campus. This project is connected to the previously completed Graduate Studios project and creates a combined 50,000 sqf Graduate Studies campus.

The expanded aluminum mesh forms an open scrim-like wall at the street’s edge. Behind the mesh skin are two pre-engineered steel buildings that house sixty-eight individual artist studios, classrooms, administrative offices and exhibit spaces. The open space between the buildings forms a courtyard with shade trees and outdoor workshops.
