WINNER Morphosis Architects | Los Angeles, California, United States
Emerson College Los Angeles
This mixed-use facility establishes Boston-based Emerson’s identity in Los Angeles, California. Designed by Morphosis Architects to be a magnet
for activity, it provides an iconic setting for premieres, events, and student showcases that draw the general public, students, and industry
professionals. The new USD 85 million facility will also host workshops, lectures, and other events that engage the broader community.
The investment in BIM on this project allowed for seamless workflows among the architect, project consultants, and subcontractors, so
detailed 3D models could easily be shared among all key stakeholders. This integrated approach – largely built on AECOsim Building Designer,
GenerativeComponents, MicroStation, Bentley Navigator, and Project Wise – allowed the project team to deliver a state-of-the-art academic
building on schedule and on budget.
