Ascend Amphitheater Received 2016 AIA Merit Award

Recognition

Ascend Amphitheater was presented with an American Institute of Architects Gulf States Award of Merit on May 20, 2016, during the National AIA Convention in Philadelphia. This is the AIA's Regional (Southeastern) Awards.  

"The reference to the amplifier as a metaphor could have been dangerous, but the architects’ subtle use of form and space was strong in its execution," was one of the comments from the jury. The amphitheater, located in Nashville, Tenn., received one of only 14 awards given out of 130 submissions.

H+F to Present Frost Auditorium Renovation Apr. 20

Lectures/Events
Known for “one of the most ambitious structural concrete domes in Los Angeles,” the modernist 1,200-seat Robert Frost Auditorium at Culver City High School is being adapted by H+F to be used as a performing arts center while being preserved as an iconic performance space. Built in 1963, it has been in continuous use since it was first commissioned. It survived the 6.7 Northridge Earthquake in 1994 and has appeared in sci-fi movies including Gattaca and Woody Allen’s Sleeper

Craig Hodgetts and Ming Fung will showcase their plans for the renovation to the public on Weds., April 20, 2016 at the Culver City Historical Society. Construction is anticipated to be underway this June. Photo: J. Shulman
