The building I chose was the Student Recreational Center because I go there 3 times a week to work out.
I learned a lot of things about the SRWC while working on this activity. I have been to the gym for a while but didn’t know much about it. I learned that the SRWC was around for 10 years! (including the time it took to pass the proposed constitution) It was a project that was proposed after surveying the students. The research showed that most students had to go to an off campus recreation center to work out or exercise because the school did not have such building.
It wasn’t till 2007 when 70% of the students voted for the construction of the gym. After 3 years, in 2010, the SRWC is open for use. In 2013, using the hand scanner, over 1 million people have been recorded to enter the building. The building was also considered the Top 20 Most Impressive College Gyms and Student Recreation Centers. If it wasn’t for this activity, I would probably go to the gym for the next two years without knowing the history behind the creation of the SRWC.
CSULB BUILDING REDESIGN
The engineering building is pretty old and is structured in a strange way. There are two different buildings that connect the VEC building to the ECS building. The ECS buildings have computers for students to use while the VEC building is for the lecture part of the class. I would like to design the building so that there is another building if font of the VEC and ECS building as the main building. It is very difficult to navigate in the engineering building if it is your first time there. There should be a building that clearly displays that this is the College of Engineering. That could be the main building that connects the rest of the building. This way you know where the college of engineering is located and you can easily choose which building to go to. This just makes the college look more prestige. Currently the engineering building looks old and split from place to place.
