Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Audrey Irmas Pavilion

Wilshire Boulevard Temple | Los Angeles, CA

Project Overview

The Audrey Irmas Pavilion is an inspiring gathering place for the entire community, designed to host religious and cultural activities and performances on Wilshire Boulevard directly adjacent to the historic sanctuary of Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Koreatown.

The first building in Los Angeles from Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas and OMA partner Shohei Shigematsu, with collaboration by consulting architects Gruen Associates, the Audrey Irmas Pavilion includes a chapel and terrace, a grand ballroom, meeting rooms, performance spaces, a rooftop sky garden with panoramic views, and a world-class catering kitchen.

This revolutionary new building is also home to The Annenberg Foundation’s groundbreaking new initiative for purposeful aging. The center is open to the community at large and seeks to inspire a path to purposeful aging through wellness, creativity, tech exploration, social connections, community engagement, financial education, and more.

The Audrey Irmas Pavilion was awarded FIRST PLACE DESIGN EXCELLENCE AWARD in the MUNICIPAL/CULTURAL category by CFSEI (Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute). Read more here.
