42 Coding University in Fremont, CA
CH Reynolds continues to take part in building educational facilities, creating Silicon Valley’s innovative French Non-Profit Coding School, a 200,000 square foot campus in Fremont. Design included an original lighting lay-out mimicking barometric wind patterns, including hurricanes, as well as power for hexagon desk designs to connect multiple students in a collaborative teaching environment.
CH Reynolds worked in unison to provide the owners with an original solution that was on schedule and under budget. With a unique approach to learning, more than 1,000 state-of-the-art computers connect to high-speed broadband networks, and large capacity storage servers are extensively linked to provide ease of access for students’ programming projects. Design cues include elements from Star Wars, Tron, Pac-man, while the name 42 is a nod to Douglas Adams’ Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
