The latest installment of FIDM’s unique creative learning environments, the San Diego Campus, is a dynamic 'learning landscape'. Together with sister campuses in Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, the new architecture has come to represent the college’s reputation, brand, and philosophy towards education.
The warm palette of oranges, yellows and greens seen in the in the local desert vegetation compliment the rich blues of the clear desert sky. These saturated colours differentiate the 'monuments' in the landscape from the warm muted background characterised by the large oak-paneled ceiling and sand coloured quartz flooring in the public zone. The full-height wall graphics of abstracted vegetation lend visual texture to the space. Providing an environment for student socialisation, the Student Lounge offers a location for informal meeting to occur under a canopy of organic metal lanterns.
