San Diego - University of California, San Diego - Part 2

San Diego is the 8th largest city in the United States by population (1,355,000) and is by far the largest city of the San Diego-Carlsbad Metropolitan Statistical Area in Southern California (the 12th largest in the United States).

The University of California, San Diego, is located about 12 miles North of Downtown on hilly terrain that overlooks the nearby Pacific Ocean near the La Jolla region of the city. It was established in 1960 and grew throughout the 1960's. It is grouped in 6 colleges that are in clusters but the numerous recent developments have grown to blur the distinctions between these areas. This thread will focus on the features of the university's West Campus (the main campus) in two parts. Part 1 will begin with some of the original buildings from the 1960's and progress to some of the recent developments. Part 2 will continue the focus on recent buildings.

Some of the buildings at the beginning are less than impressive, to put it mildly. Maybe it's the coverings over the windows and unnecessary awnings. All of that seems like clutter.

xzmattzx, there certainly are a lot of baffles on many of these newer buildings on the campus, aren't there? It seems like many of the times I have visited the area there has been enough fog or low cloud cover to suggest that the baffles aren't always useful as they would be in a sunnier hotter climate...the days I took these photos were certainly bright though.

dc denizen, I regret that I have no photos of the Salk Institute even though I was so close to it, the fog was barreling in when I arrived in that area and I got snooty about taking sunny pics so I gave up at that point!
