Cal Poly SLO Frost Center Gets Underway

The ZGF-designed William and Linda Frost Center for Research and Innovation on Cal Poly SLO’s campus is about to get out of the ground! Approximately 75% of the footings are complete, and concrete walls and columns are beginning to be poured. The project is located just across the street from the Baker Center, another JAMA/ZGF effort, and when complete will house three colleges under one roof:

College of Science and Mathematics: Supported by William and Linda Frost will be 13 modern laboratories designed for students to perform cutting edge research with their faculty mentors in each of the College’s disciplines. A new plant conservatory will be constructed on the hill overlooking Poly Canyon Village at the intersection of Village Drive and Poly Canyon Road.

College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences: The Boswell Agricultural Technology Center will facilitate research and discovery in seven cutting edge laboratories to educate tomorrow’s leaders in food innovation and experiential design.

College of Liberal Arts: The Jack and Felicia Cashin Expressive Technology Studios will house performance, recording, editing and project design spaces, as well as a computer lab, for students and faculty to collaborate on creative work at the nexus of the arts, humanities and technology.

We’re excited to see this one completed late in 2021.
