Abstract/Artist Statement

The Cesar Chavez Library was built in 1964 and after almost six decades of deferred maintenance, requires renovation. Considering the age of the building, new additions must also bring the building to CEQA, ADA, and City of Stockton Standards. Along with this, upgrades will make the library more inviting and accessible to the community.

Located in Downtown Stockton, the Cesar Chavez Library and the 1-99 W Oak Street Parking lot can be remodeled to increase foot traffic to the library and surrounding areas. Adding solar panels to the parking lot will reduce non-renewable energy usage and also bring shade that will protect parked vehicles from damage caused by the sun. While redesigning the library, ENVISION standards will attempt to be met, but also looking to reach net-zero building emissions. Using the rational method, a redesigned drainage system will distribute stormwater to bioretention basins around the library and parking lot, repurposing rainwater and giving the building and lot an eco-friendly appearance.
