“The Audrey Irmas Pavilion is a striking new building in the Wilshire Boulevard Temple’s Glazer Family Campus, designed by OMA and completed in collaboration with Gruen Associates. Located in the heart of Koreatown and directly adjacent to the Temple’s beautifully restored, historic sanctuary, the AIP serves as a multi-purpose event space for both the congregation and the surrounding city. The pavilion forges physical and visual connections with the sanctuary and school, and hosts a variety of gathering spaces inside and outside of the building, including a fully-occupiable landscaped roof, which highlights the AIP’s intimate relationship with the sanctuary and provides panoramic views of the LA basin.”
