Audrey Irmas Pavilion

The Audrey Irmas Pavilion will be an inspiring gathering place for the entire community, designed to host religious and cultural activities and performances on Wilshire Boulevard directly adjacent to the historic sanctuary of Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Koreatown.

The first building in Los Angeles from Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas and OMA partner Shohei Shigematsu, with collaboration by consulting architects Gruen Associates, the Audrey Irmas Pavilion will include a chapel and terrace, a grand ballroom, meeting rooms, performance spaces, a rooftop sky garden with panoramic views, and a world-class catering kitchen.

This revolutionary new building will also be home to The Annenberg Foundation's groundbreaking new initiative for purposeful aging. The center will be open to the community at large and will seek to inspire a path to purposeful aging through wellness, creativity, tech exploration, social connections, community engagement, financial education and more.

Ground was broken for the Audrey Irmas Pavilion on November 11, 2018. Physical construction began in December 2018 and is expected to be complete by early 2021.
