Arts District resident Scot Ezzell snapped the featured photo above of the new SCI-Arc Graduation Pavilion, which is near completion and is now surrounded by fence banners touting “SCI-Arc turns 40 (1973-2013).”
Designed and built by faculty Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich of Los Angeles-based firm P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S (through funding from ArtPlace), the new 1,200-seat outdoor pavilion is named “League of Shadows” and was the duo’s winning entry from an architectural design competition last year.
The pavilion will be used for SCI-Arc graduation ceremonies, lectures, and symposia as well as selected neighborhood concerts and public events through 2017. Its first public use occurs at the school’s graduation ceremonies on Sunday, September 8 at 5:00 PM.
