Alignment of new trees planted in CSU Domingues Hills


The California State University Dominguez Hills campus was originally created by LA's modernist architect A. Quincy Jones. Characterized by significant modernist buildings where large eucalyptus and coral trees have grown on the hills, open spaces per building create unique areas of refuge for study, meditation, and group work away from the busy symbolic main promenade. 

Since 2018, as a designated Campus Master Landscape Architect for 345 - acres CSUDH Campus, HKLA carries the spirit of the campus' historic and cultural significance through a number of on-going projects, introducing contemporary aesthetics, sustainability, and state-of-the-art landscape techniques to harmonize humans and nature in complicated and diverse academic setting. 

Per the newly proposed master plan, the north of the Innovation, and Instruction building for the business school is defined as the "campus edge", where canopy trees with shade provide an inviting pedestrian atmosphere while buffering traffic on the Service Road and East Victoria Street. The I & I building for the business school anchors the northeast corner of the campus' symbolic North Lawn. This landscape concept design enhances a multi-programmable outdoor space while also providing fluent pedestrian circulation from the northeast side of campus to the North Lawn.
