Munk Lab receives Preservation Design Award

We are thrilled to announce that the restoration project at IGPP Munk Lab has been honored with a Preservation Design Award from the California Preservation Foundation. Designed by acclaimed San Diego architect Lloyd Ruocco, "Munk Lab has been an incubator of scientific and geophysical exploration and advancement since its original construction in 1963."

The restoration project returned the building to its former glory, reversing decades of deferred maintenance by repairing, reconnecting, selectively replacing, and refinishing severely deteriorated redwood and Douglas fir features including structural beams, posts, siding, sliding glass doors, and windows.
