2022 Commercial Real Estate Awards: Architectural Excellence


Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

Location: 6067 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles
Developer: Academy Museum of Motion Pictures
Contractor: MATT Construction
Architect: Gensler / Renzo Piano Building Workshop

The Renzo Piano Building Workshop in collaboration with Gensler transformed this 230,000 square foot historic landmark structure into the stunning Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, which encompasses more than 50,000 square feet of gallery space, theaters, education labs, offices, conservation facilities, a restaurant and a retail store. The Academy Museum hosts the 300-seat Ted Mann Theater at the Saban Building, formerly the notable May Company Department Store. Tethered to the museum by three bridges, a 60,000-square-foot precast concrete and glass sphere houses the state-of-the-art, 1,000-seat David Geffen Theater that floats above an active plaza on a series of base isolator piers. Perched atop the sphere, a glass-enclosed terrace and exhibition space invites the public to enjoy spectacular panoramic views, providing a unique and memorable visitor experience.

Now, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures is the largest museum in the United States devoted to the arts, sciences, and artists of moviemaking. Global in outlook and grounded in the unparalleled collections and expertise of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Academy Museum offers exceptional exhibitions and programs that illuminate the world of cinema.

Wilshire Boulevard Temple Events and Program Building

Contractor: MATT Construction
Architect: OMA / Gruen Associates

The Audrey Irmas Pavilion is a new addition to the Wilshire Boulevard Temple’s Glazer Family Campus that will serve as a multi-purpose event space for both the congregation and the surrounding city. The pavilion will be a gathering place, forging new connections with the existing campus activities and inviting the urban realm into the new civic anchor. The building was designed to be iconic enough to be recognized as a new civic entity, but subtle enough to complement the iconicism of the existing temple.
