Project Summary

Elemental Construction in California

UCLA Warner Graduate Art Studio renovation and addition

Addition to and adaptive reuse of a former wallpaper factory using elemental construction for the Graduate Art Studios at UCLA in Culver City, California.

The project’s basic objectives are twofold: to rehabilitate existing urban and architectural elements – through adaptive reuse and complementary additions; and to frame a discourse on the role of mundane construction as the generator of space and form.
