Skirball Getting New Moshe Safdie-Designed Event Space

New, 5 comments

The Skirball Cultural Center is right now getting its final piece, designed by architect Moshe Safdie, who created the rest of the Jewish educational/cultural institution in the mid-1990s. The Guerin Pavilion and adjoining Herscher Hall will ad 17,500 square feet of event and meeting space, including a 9,000-square-foot ballroom with retractable glass walls, "capped with majestic arches and affording sweeping views of a cascading tiered garden," plus reception areas and meeting rooms and suits, according to a press release (the Skirball also provides on-site catering and A/V, so it'll be a pretty full-service event space). The addition "marks the completion of the Skirball campus," which covers 15 acres in the Brentwood hills--when it's finished, they'll have 60,000 square feet total. Guerin and Herscher are set to open in October this year.
