Modern Theatre Building with Architectural Concrete Panels

Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts

Beverly Hills, CA

2013

70,000 sf

A revitalization of the long-dormant Beverly Hills post office site brings nightlife and daytime green space to the heart of the Beverly Hills business triangle. Celebrating the history of the site, the skin of the new Goldsmith Theater is an abstraction of the millions of letters and envelopes that once defined this historic site.

What was once a hub of private personal communication becomes a modern theatre building for art and education. In doing so, the Center embodies the invisible monumentality of the process of mail distribution, creating a resonance with its new function as a center for the processing and distribution of culture.
