The Glorya Kaufman Performing Arts Center received an AIA LA Design Award on Oct. 28, 2021. Here’s what the jury had to say:
It has a sense of dignity, but at the same time it’s almost a civic scale. It’s really a very effective almost monumental building, while being modest at the same time. This is a surgical addition that reinvents the relationship of the existing building to its campus context. In turn, it transforms the experience of the overall building and theater. The building is carefully considered, with a façade that is compositionally very strong within a restrained set of materials and moves.
The Glorya Kaufman Performing Arts Center was completed in May 2021.
