Project Title
Beverly Hills Civic Center
Moshe Safdie was invited to submit a competition proposal for a civic center in Beverly Hills on a site partially occupied by the historic City Hall. The competition identified the need for a new Police facility, a Fire Department headquarters, and a Community Cultural Resources facility. The new Civic Complex proposed by Safdie featured two glass pavilions for small ceremonies, a "Great Hall" with adjustable seating for larger performances, and a sunken rectangular reflecting pool, surrounded by terraced garden walkways at the centre. the jury noted that his scheme "excelled in the development of an architecture of meeting."
