Video: RNT Architects' "New Gateway" to San Diego City College

Watch RNT Architects discuss The Quad, their new Business, Arts & Humanities building for San Diego City College in this short video from Breadtruck Films. The result of seven years of "doing the drawings...watching the construction... building the volumes and the spaces," The Quad brings together two faculties that are "different in purpose and function differently" to create a "place for learning and social interaction."

In this video Principal Ralph Roesling and Associate and project architect Jeremy Joyce discuss materiality and character, and their deliberate creation of a building "intended to last."

"Inspiration is a complex thing," said Joyce, "It's difficult to define how to create an inspirational space. Every corner you turn you're going to be inspired and hopefully come up with a great idea."
