The John Lo Schiavo, S.J. Center for Science and Innovation is quickly becoming a new hot spot on the University of San Francisco campus. It’s also the subject of a front-page architectural critique in the San Francisco Chronicle. The article shows how the NBBJ-designed project maximizes space on a tight urban campus, while enriching the lives of students, faculty and staff.
Architecture critic John King summarizes his thoughts on the design by saying, “In and of itself, Lo Schiavo Center is a refined work of architecture. It’s even better as part of something larger, and that’s the standard by which all urban buildings should be judged.”
