Wow... Construction is 5 stories or less, yet no wood framing.

Hammer Museum to expand as UCLA acquires Occidental Petroleum property

The Hammer Museum at UCLA is expanding its footprint in Westwood, taking over five floors of the Occidental Petroleum office tower that will give the contemporary art institution more than 30% additional exhibition and administrative space.

Until recently, the Hammer had leased its space from Occidental. Officials at the Hammer and UCLA said Monday that the expansion is part of a recent real estate deal in which the university has become the Hammer's new landlord.

UCLA said it has acquired a full city block of property from Occidental that includes the office tower and the museum building, both of which had belonged to the oil company. The acquisition also includes the 634-space underground parking garage.

The museum said the additional 40,000 square feet of footage will allow the Hammer to upgrade and expand its existing gallery space and to create dedicated galleries for the Hammer Contemporary Collection and works on paper.

In addition, the Hammer said it plans build a new study center for the UCLA Grunwald Center Collection. Additional spaces will include a classroom and support spaces.

Currently, the Hammer occupies 121,000 square feet of space.

UCLA's art school plans to build a $31-million expansion in Culver City with major donation

The university is in the late planning stages to build a $31-million studio complex for graduate art students, according to people familiar with the project. The 75,000-square-foot building would replace a tumble-down facility currently in use. The impressive plan, set to be shown Thursday to a group of university supporters, was conceived in 2011 but languished for lack of funds.

Major funding for the project will come from Margo Leavin, the art dealer whose eponymous gallery held forth in West Hollywood for 42 years until her retirement in 2012.

The timing is ripe. Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked UCLA's master of fine arts program No. 2 in the nation, just behind Yale — a private university with the second-largest endowment in the United States. UCLA's art school tied Virginia Commonwealth University, notable for its design program.

It would be nice to see SC and/or SCI-Arc do more work on the industrial buildings DT and see what ideas they come up with. Lots of buildings that could use some work.

L.A.-based hub will help create factory sensors

Los Angeles will become the headquarters for a federally funded institute devoted to developing sensors that make manufacturing more efficient.

President Obama announced the project, which will receive $140 million in public and private funding, Monday at the SelectUSA summit in Washington, D.C.

A consortium of researchers in Los Angeles will coordinate the work of five regional centers — one at UCLA and outposts in Texas, New York, Washington and North Carolina. Dozens of companies across the country will participate and invest in the initiative, including Google, Microsoft and Northrop Grumman.

UCLA prepares to move forward with new graduate art studios funded by Margo Leavin

When famed Los Angeles gallerist Margo Leavin announced in May that she would make a $20-million donation to UCLA to remake the school’s grungy graduate art studios, the move was celebrated for the investment it brought to an important public educational institution. Now the project is moving forward, as the UC Board of Regents gathers Tuesday to approve the plan.

“It’s crucial,” says Levin. “I don’t think public universities — or any university — has a problem raising funds for medicine, stem cell research, health, etc. But the arts do not have as wide of an audience. And UCLA is a jewel of a school.”

LA 2024 Extol Successful Test Event Almost 8 Years Before Any Possible Olympics Opening Ceremony

Los Angeles’ Bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Thursday celebrated the success of what organizers called an “Olympic Village Dress Rehearsal”. The bid last week helped facilitate the move-in of 12,800 University of California students into their UCLA accommodations, a process they say closely emulates that of the Olympic Village.

Should L.A. win its bid to host the Games in 2024 the UCLA campus will accommodate the athletes and officials in a location that is considered central in the overall Games plan and will provide easy access to four planned sports parks. 16,000 students are scheduled to reside in the facilities during the 2016/2017 school term.

In a statement LA 2024 explained “UCLA’s residential village offers fully accessible, modern housing, complete with beautiful reception and hosting centers; world-class medical facilities and expansive athletic facilities within walking distance from all residences; and a professional staff, security and operational structure that serves thousands of guests every year.”

Hammer Museum announces a big expansion on Wilshire
Just in time for the subway’s arrival to Westwood

In another sign that LA’s art scene is booming, the Hammer Museum in Westwood announced this morning that it will undergo a remodel and expansion, taking over a neighboring tower to give the museum a new presence on Wilshire Boulevard.

UCLA bought the Occidental Petroleum tower last year, and it will use the top floors for offices—but the museum will get the bottom five stories for a big lobby and museum store, plus a new gallery in the space that used to be occupied by City National Bank. That means the Hammer will have a new entrance at the corner of Wilshire and Westwood.

Los Angeles-based architect Michael Maltzan will design the new spaces and “completely reimagine” the existing, boxy building. The Hammer still needs to line up funding, but the project is expected to wrap up by 2020. That’s four years before the subway’s Purple Line is scheduled to reach Westwood with a station on the Hammer’s block.
