Pepper Canyon's Neighborhood Planning Study infuses student housing into the canyon.
The network of pedestrian and bike pathways, as well as the light rail bisecting the canyon, provide a unique opportunity to bring students and visitors in close contact with nature in their daily experience on campus.
The extension through Pepper Canyon West will feature a Stuart Collection art installation, ‘Convergence’ by Ann Hamilton.
The Study encourages ground floor spaces be devoted to transit-oriented retail for joint use by student residents and campus visitors.
Study diagrams focused on connecting Pepper Canyon to campus features including the academic core, library walk and the Triton Pavilion now in development. Interstitial spaces between buildings are optimized to provide access to nature and connectivity across the expansive campus.
