East Los Angeles Language Arts Center

East Los Angeles, California

Gruen Associates designed the new Language Arts Center with approximately 60,000 GSF of new classrooms and associated support space, required infrastructure, as well as with a landscape design. Departments in the programming requirements included English, American Sign Language, Foreign Language, Speech, non-credit basic skills/ESL and Reading. Gruen Associates planned and designed the Language Arts Center to be within the parameters of the existing master plan and the Building Program, and to be constructed while existing campus-wide programs were in operation.

The project was designed to provide an identifiable Language Arts Center for the campus. The project was placed on hold due to funding and re-evaluation of District priorities.n.
