Gordon Carrier’s lecture on SDSU West Master Plan
Carrier, Chairman and Design Principal of Carrier Johnson + CULTURE, will discuss the conceptual site planning design he led for San Diego State University. Campus supporters successfully mounted an initiative campaign to direct the city to sell the property where SDCCU Stadium was opened in 1967. The SDSU effort won city voter approval over the competing SoccerCity plan on the November ballot.
It is unclear at the moment how much of the SDSU West plan will be adopted by California State University if both sides come to terms on the transfer of the property. Months of planning and environmental review will be necessary before the roadmap is adopted.
But it’s safe to assume that the major components will show up in the plan: a new, smaller stadium for Aztec football and other sports; thousands of housing units; space for commercial office buildings and university uses; retail and hotel buildings; and a San Diego River park.
