Claremont McKenna College – Roberts Pavilion

Modeled like a sensuous sculpture and powerfully set center-stage, the college’s fitness and recreation center is a real draw on the campus, both visually and in terms of its facilities. The streamlined shape and terracotta panels create a homogeneous exterior. Surrounding the facade are vertically mounted, ultra-large-format, light-cream panels, which are broken up by slim, glazed strips interspersed at irregular intervals to provide colorful highlights. Single and double firing techniques were employed to create different colors – white, yellow or red. With the rounded window cut-outs, protrusions jutting out obliquely from the wall and the numerous different angles, the design required a high standard of workmanship, a challenge overcome thanks to the use of various formats and complicated cuts.
