UC Berkeley Mining Circle Restoration

Location: University of California, Berkeley


PGAdesign restored the Mining Circle and its historic reflecting pool as a valuable contemplative space at the heart of UC Berkeley’s campus. PGAdesign’s design honored the original appearance and tradition of the setting, at the same time adapting it to the developing needs and population of a 21st-century university.

PGAdesign led a team of consultants in a complex and challenging restoration. They accommodated a limited budget by staging the work in phases, achieving the best results without compromising the vision of the original design.
