“act as a “beacon”, calling to faculty, staff, students and the larger Claremont community”

The new building will support HMC’s unique blend of collaborative, interdisciplinary teaching and learning.

Months of careful planning and community discussion culmi- nated Jan. 29, 2011 in an historic vote by the Harvey Mudd College Board of Trustees, who agreed to proceed with the con- struction of a new teaching and learning building. It will be the first such facility to be erected on the HMC campus in nearly two decades. The decision strengthens the College’s determina- tion to achieve its strategic vision. “Harvey Mudd College has set the bar for undergraduate teaching and learning exceptionally high,” said President Maria Klawe. “As we continue to model our extraordinary brand to the rest of the world—a brand with the potential to keep the U.S. at the forefront of innovation in technology and industry—HMC must build for the future.” At a cost of $43 million, HMC’s new teaching and learning building will be technologically advanced and architecturally inspiring. It will replace the outmoded Thomas-Garrett Hall (dedicated in 1962), with nearly 70,000 square feet of program- mable space (only one percent of which will be dedicated to administrative purposes). With ample space for instruction, socializing, formal and informal meetings, artistic learning and performances, as well as faculty offices, the new building will double the educational space available to faculty and students.

Harvey Mudd College Teaching and Learning Building Design Presentation Sustainability

• BubbleDeck structural system, the first of its kind in the U.S. • Indirect lighting, radiant panels, ceiling fans and operable windows.

• Extensive day-lighting with sun shades and light shelves. • Exterior circulation to maximize daylight and natural ventila- tion for most interior spaces, and covered areas for outdoor activities.

• Exterior façade of durable, energy-efficient metal shingle/rain- screen design, evocative of the distinctive brickwork (so-called “warts”), which decorates the exteriors of most HMC buildings.

• Responsible landscaping: Mature oak trees sit on the north and west edges of the site. The building form steps around these trees in order to preserve and highlight them.
