ArtCenter 1111 Level 4

Bruce Heavin and Lynda Weinman Alumni Center

October 2018

 

The Bruce Heavin and Lynda Weinman Alumni Center is designed to span across the middle of the fourth level of ArtCenter’s 1111 South Arroyo parkway building. Situated between views of the city to the east and views of the evolving south campus to the west the new center features a dedicated alumni gallery, conference center and lounge. The spaces, physically and visually connected to the elevator lobby, are flexibly designed to accommodate multiple types of alumni events. The center itself locates each Alum within the campus and within their larger network of peers.

 

In the Alumni Gallery space a 25’ x 8’ digital touch screen is programmed to contain an interactive virtual alumni gallery encompassing work of distinguished Alumni through the decades and around the globe. The glass curtain wall that separates the conference center and lounge from the elevator lobby has a translucent color screened film with the Alumni Center signage and the iconic ArtCenter ‘dot’. The space also features lighting designed by ArtCenter Alum Scott Yu of Vode Lighting, and furniture designed by ArtCenter Alum Nolen Niu.

 

ArtCenter College of Design quote:

‘The Bruce Heavin and Lynda Weinman Alumni Center provides the

College’s global alumni network of 20,000 artists and designers a

dedicated gallery, lounge and conference room to convene when

they return to campus. Whether you’re visiting to participate in an

AlumNetwork panel discussion, FullCircle event, Storyboard night,

Supper Club or introducing potential partners to the College, the Alumni Center will serve as an important programmatic gathering space—not to mention a constant source of inspiration.’
