University of Arizona’s Colonia de la Paz Residence Halls: Architecture for the Ages... and for Arms


A happy resident of the Colonia de la Paz Residence Halls

Extremely popular since they first opened, the Colonia de la Paz Residence Halls that we designed for the University of Arizona provide a vibrant community that generates strong bonds among its residents. We are delighted with this evidence of one student's loyalty, sent to us by the Office of Student Affairs at the University. Although designing for permanence has always been a fundamental element of our approach to sustainability, even we were surprised by this new twist on architectural timelessness!
