Los Angeles, CA | 6 buildings| 1,500,000 sq ft
The Getty Center consists of over 1,500,000 square feet of construction spread among six separate, but interconnected, structures on a 110-acre site in the Santa Monica Mountains at the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and the San Diego Freeway. A steeply sloping site with an inactive fault trace traversing the site complicated our structural design development. A wide variety of programs including a museum, Trust offices, conservation laboratories, library circulation and storage areas, food service areas, auditorium, parking structures, and elaborate mechanical and utility area are included in the project. An elevated transportation shuttle, three quarters of a mile in length, interconnects a seven level underground parking structure with the main site.
