William & Linda Frost Center for Research and Innovation, + Home to the Boswell Agricultural Technology Center  / This new interdisciplinary complex at the center of the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo campus will house three different colleges: College of Science and Mathematics, College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences, and College of Liberal Arts. Aligning with master planning efforts, it will replace several 1- and 2-story buildings with a larger scale, higher density complex. The project's key landscape goal is the activation and creation of green spaces within the site that respond to campus needs and offer both educational and recreational settings. The design includes six distinct spaces (Gateway, Canyon, Bluff, Landing, Dell, and Grove), each offering a different microclimate and scale of space, from larger open areas capable of hosting events to sheltered seating for small groups or individuals. The plant palette is diverse and intended to build upon the campus' collection of interesting trees. The groundbreaking was held May 3, 2019, with target completion in spring 2021.
