Change The Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at the California Institute of Technology (GALCIT) has been behind some of the most significant and revolutionary achievements in the short history of flight, yet by the time we first visited the department in 2006 its historically-protected facilities, designed by Bertrand Goodhue and constructed in 1921, had barely seen any modernization. This project involved the renovation of approximately 33,000 square feet of the department’s laboratories, offices, common spaces, and conference rooms. Inspiration To bring relevance and meaning to the project’s spaces, the design employs some of the same concepts, processes, and sophisticated technologies used in the department’s own, widely varied and interdisciplinary research. The results are joyful, creative environments that encourage interaction, teamwork, and the free flow of ideas.
