Event Details

As part of the first-ever LA Design Festival, de LaB is hosting a tour of Kanner Architects' Heart of LA building at Lafayette Park. Heart of LA (or HOLA) provides an oasis of safety and encouragement to under-served inner city at-risk youth. The center was Los Angeles architect Stephen Kanner's last major project.

Formerly a senior center, the newly renovated 15,000 complex boasts a light-filled gym and interconnected classroom spaces and community rooms. Originally designed by modernist architect Graham Latta, the best of the center's original features - such as the barrel arched concrete canopies - are highlighted by the remodel. The new center is the City of LA's first LEED-certified building and the result of a successful partnership between the LA Department of Parks and Recreation and HOLA.

There's been no shortage of buzz about the the building. Check out these stories in the LA Times and The Architect's Newspaper.

The tour is FREE. However, we ask that you bring school or art supplies as a donation to support the work of this great organization.
