The venue will connect UC Santa Barbara leaders and students in the fields of environmental stewardship, with business leaders, academics, researchers, non-profit partners, governmental agencies, artists, and community members. The currently scoped project is to create a feasibility study and Detailed Project Program to renovate 19,042 gross square feet.  The concept requires a comprehensive analysis to ensure both programmatic and operational requirements are defined.
