In the late 1990s PWP and Ricardo Legorreta won a competition to design a new facility for a short-term intensified MBA program at the Stanford School of Business. A complex of spaces—including residential rooms, lecture facilities, and kitchen and dining areas—is softened by landscape features including a pool surrounded by willow and fern, a large grassed courtyard planted with dark green conifers, a formal palm court, and an orchard of pear trees.
