As the place in which the transition from driver to pedestrian occurs, the 409,000-square-foot LAGarageis a nexus of activity for people arriving on campus. “Coming to the table with no preconceived ideas helped make innovation happen,” notes Jeff Yrazabal, Principal-in-charge of the project for SRG Partnership. The design breaks up the typical parking structure mass, providing opportunities for daylight and creating a “wow” space in between: a public covered courtyard carved into the center of the building that encourages chance encounters, casual gatherings, and collaboration.
