ARCH 302B: Architectural Design III Gallery: Re-thinking the LA industrial vernacular and the long span tradition

Leimert Park Community Center

The community center is nested in Leimert Park, an African American cultural hub in South Los Angeles. The building aims at creating a space for the community to cultivate: relationships, learning, and the arts. Covered by a shaded truss system, it provides recreational, educational, and retail spaces for all ages in the neighborhood to use.
