Monterey Peninsula College – Marina Education Center
This campus design captures the essence of water movement, both literally and figuratively. Rainwater from downspouts is showcased on ornamental splash pads before it travels into landscaped swales and is absorbed or reused to irrigate onsite trees. Curvilinear walks and sweeping planting drifts further evoke the theme of water. Plantings respond to the unique climate of cool foggy summers, sandy soil, and constant coastal breezes.
