The University of Southern California broke ground in May of 2021 on the Dr. Allen and Charlotte Ginsburg Human-Centered Computation Hall in Los Angeles. Located on the University Park campus, the 116,000-sf facility will accommodate the Viterbi School of Engineering’s programs in artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning, cryptography, internet technology, health computing, software development, and computer graphics. Designed by HOK, the seven-story structure will provide technology-rich laboratories, interactive classrooms, an aerial robotics flight zone, a 300-seat auditorium with a video wall, faculty and administrative offices, and flexible collaboration and study spaces. LEED Platinum certification will be sought for the project, which will act as a living laboratory for sustainability with integrated sensors and actuators producing data that can be analyzed to optimize energy performance. Leveraging extensive internal and external glazing to put science on display, the facility will include a rooftop photovoltaic array, a sunken garden for water diversion and conservation, and a highly efficient server room. Occupancy is expected in 2023.
