Los Angeles Convention Center
Los Angeles, California
In conjunction with the Olin Studio, Chu + Gooding Architects and HMC Architects, we designed the winning submission for the international design competition to expand and renovate the Los Angeles Convention Center. LACC 2020, a $350-million transformation of the existing facility, features a colorful, airy approach connecting the South and West Halls with a new exhibit structure over Pico Boulevard, a large and unprecedented outdoor ballroom space, world-class flexible meeting space and landscaped public open space on the site. The new LACC will reposition Los Angeles as the international convention destination of choice on the West Coast and serve as a physical convergence of placemaking, sustainable design, functionality and authenticity.
