2 Radical Plans For Turning Westwood Village Around
Thursday, March 22, 2012, by Adrian Glick Kudler





Quote:
Back in October, we heard about cityLAB's efforts to reimagine down and out Westwood Village. With the Purple Line now officially on its way and locals making an effort to clean the place up a little (and now that we know its origins), it's prime time to think about getting the once-popular area back on track. The think tank had architects Roger Sherman (with Edwin Chan) and Neil Denari come up with new visions--Sherman and Chan's concept is called Living Culture and it moves the Fowler Museum and UCLALive's programs from campus out to theaters in the Village. It also creates a public gathering space at Westwood and Broxton called Zocalo, with a park and ride garage underneath and "an entertainment/conference center/arts hotel 'gateway' complex" above. And it adds seven "slender live/work mid-rises." They also made up a whole newspaper for October 10, 2025 with "delightful period-perfect details, from gossip about a washed up Lady Gaga to film premieres (Twilight: At First Bite in '3DS')," according to Alissa Walker over at Gelato Baby, who contributed an article on the subway's arrival.

Most of the back is covered with glass, they're working on the front now.

Nice to see UCLA getting away from brick. The older stone/brick buildings (Haynes, the Library, Royce, etc.) were very classy but the 1950's additions were monolithic and boring in that late modernist way (you can see them in the background).

I never made that connection, but I think that's right. Sort of imposing and off-putting. But they tended to be math, sciences and engineering buildings so maybe that was just my reaction.

UCLA had won plenty of national championships – 108 in the NCAA, 129 overall – but never one in baseball.

Until Tuesday, when the Bruins beat Mississippi State, 8-0, to complete a sweep of five games at the College World Series.

Ground breaking for the new Center is planned for Summer 2013.

Funded in part by a generous gift from two alumni and longtime supporters, the Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference and Guest Center will allow UCLA to compete with other universities for major academic conferences that connect faculty, researchers and students with scholars from around the world to exchange ideas and elevate debate on some of society’s greatest challenges. Centrally located near UCLA campus icons like Pauley Pavilion and Ackerman Student Union, the state-of-the-art center will include 25,000 square feet of meeting space and 250 guest rooms.

UCLA started work on the Teaching and Learning Center for Health Sciences late in September. Unsurprisingly, they prefer referring to it as "TLC." $120 million, 110,000 sq feet. Design work by SOM, set to open in 2016.

Unexciting, but in keeping with the medical campus style.

As they say in tech, worry less about what's going on outside the building and more about what's going on inside. Applies in spades for education facilities.

Wow, many thanks to jgacis and uclaperson for great updates. I had seen the Luskin recently but am glad to see what it will look like eventually.

Btw, I was in Westwood today and the streets and restaurants were really bustling. It used to be that it was quite deserted when the students weren't there. I wonder if it is the presence of foreign grad students and the hospital expansions that keeps it hopping during school breaks?
