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.
