Southland Cerritos Center for Transportation Technology that located in California, United States, was designed by Tate Snyder Kimsey Caldwell Architects. This automotive technology centre is the final piece of a community college’s esteemed automotive program. In addition to state-of-the-art class and conference rooms, it houses offices for the regional car dealers association and a private automotive management university, which supplement the college’s financial resources while expanding students’ educational opportunities.
The low wings of the building, with their radiused corners, visually tie it to the existing complex, while the showroom projects over the rest of the building, acting as a beacon of the program. The showroom, which divides the educational side from the business side, is used by both schools as a teaching lab to introduce new technology and by auto dealers to introduce new models and train sales staff.
