Culver City, CA
October 21, 2013--After competing against seven other well-respected architectural firms, Parallax has been selected to design the conceptual master plan for Big Rock Ranch, a private school located in Old Topanga Canyon. Parallax has partnered with Opsis Architecture from Oregon, a firm which will contribute its specialized Net Zero/sustainability experience to the project.
Headed by Dr. Paul Astin, former principal of the Mariposa School for Global Education, Big Rock Ranch will be a learning environment that emphasizes “human ecology.” Students will be as involved in their studies as they are in their community. The dramatic topography of the site will play a key role in the development of the master plan.
Parallax was chosen in part because of our two decades of experience designing integrated and sustainable master plans throughout Southern California. We are looking forward to creating a campus that honors the historical legacy of the Old Topanga Canyon site while simultaneously anticipating the needs of a globally competitive learning institution.
