Pauley's Got A Controversy

New, 1 comment

This update on the recently announced NBBJ-designed Pauley Pavilion renovation plan slipped past us last weekend, but the UCLA Buildings & Grounds blog picked it up: "Details of a plan to renovate the 44-year-old Pauley Pavilion — the legendary basketball venue at the University of California at Los Angeles — have proved so controversial that the architect Frank Gehry weighed in with a warning and the university sacked a longtime supporter as head of the project’s fund-raising committee, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday." The short story is that UCLA alumni Richard Bergman, who was in charge of overseeing the renovation campaign, was fired after expressing concerns about the design. [Buildings & Grounds]
