From the 2022 Architectural Portfolio: San Jacinto College, Anderson-Ball Classroom Building

Feb. 1, 2023
Jurors awarded the project a Postsecondary Citation for its exemplary design.

The new classroom building at San Jacinto College in Pasadena, Texas, is the latest addition to the school’s Central Campus. As the nation’s largest mass timber classroom building, it exhibits the mass timber structure throughout all public spaces and on its exterior façade. Situated at the previous site of the Anderson Tech and Ball Tech buildings, the facility reuses the existing foundation and attaches to the existing Davison Building.

This is a high-performing building with several sustainable strategies, such as the reuse of existing building foundations, electrochromic glazing, grey water reuse, tubular daylighting, photovoltaic panels on the roofs, and mass timber.
