CJ+C Embraces a Sustainable Culture

The CJ+C team is committed to sustainable design throughout all aspects of our lives. Recently, our San Diego office hosted a succulent building workshop to celebrate Earth Month, nature, and biophilic design. Our sustainability committee regularly plans events that acknowledge the great responsibility we have as designers of the built environment.

CJ+C’s PLNU Science Center featured in ArchDaily

CJ+C is honored to be recognized by ArchDaily as one of San Diego’s best examples of contemporary architecture for our Point Loma Nazarene University Science Center project.

“Designed by San Diego-based architectural firm, Carrier Johnson + CULTURE, and constructed by Rudolph and Sletten, Inc. General Contractors, the 36,000-square-foot complex sits at the heart of the San Diego campus. The innovative design, marked by a curved stainless-steel environmental screen and its prominent coastal site, becomes a memorable home for the university’s rapidly growing and acclaimed interdisciplinary science program, unifying Christian values with a broad curriculum and state-of-the-art technology, laboratories, and classrooms.” -Eric Baldwin, ArchDaily
