IRVINE RANCH BUILDINGS

The oldest buildings on campus, dating back to when this was a working cattle ranch, and long pre-dating the establishment of UCI.

The UCI barn once housed the offices of campus architect William Periera and more recently, workshops, classes and performances by UCI arts students. A Sears and Roebuck pre-cut building, it was first situated off campus and was later moved to its present location near the Anteater Recreation Center. The barn was also used by famed theater director Jerzy Grotowski in the mid-1980s and was part of UCI's child care center in the 1970s.

   

   




Inhabiting three remodeled farmhouses that were originally part of the Irvine Ranch, the Farm School took around 50 students per year and provided a non-traditional ungraded learning environment that incorporated their rural surroundings.
I have fond memories of the years that our sons attended the Farm School, which closed in2007. Presently the buildings are boarded up and looking rather forelorne. I do not know whether they are scheduled for renovation or demolition - it would be a shame to lose this piece of history in the race toward a 'Brilliant Future'
