Orange Coast College’s original legacy campus, the world’s only  college campus designed by the powerful trio of master architect Richard Neutra and Robert Alexander with master landscape architect Garrett Eckbo, Eckbo, Royston and Williams, is proposed to be demolished. Neutra and Alexander were assisted by noted Orange County architect William Blurock, FAIA, among others. Here are some historic materials to underscore the importance of this award-winning campus, now evaluated as a potential historic district. Source: UCLA, Charles E.
