About the Buildings

Award-winning architect Daniel Solomon worked with MBT Architecture of San Francisco and James Guthrie & Associates of San Mateo to design Stanford’s six studio buildings. The first two opened in 2000; Studios 4-6 opened in 2002-2004.

Solomon, known for his leadership in the urban design movement, is a founding member of and wrote the charter for the Chicago-based Congress for the New Urbanism. The studios are based on a design ethos that integrates urbanism with environmental sensitivity.

Solomon’s approach to designing EV’s Studios follows the theory that neighborhoods should be diverse in use and population, communities should be designed for pedestrians as well as cars, buildings should be universally accessible, and architecture and landscape design should celebrate local history, climate, ecology, and building traditions.


Studio 2 is connected to the campus' Central Energy Facility which supplies hot and chilled water for heating and cooling. The energy plant reduces greenhouse gas emissions for the campus by 68% per year, and water consumption by 33% compared to the previous steam plant. The plant reduces energy used to heat and cool residential buildings by 40%.
