The article, which is targeted to member universities and sports fans, begins by talking about the success of the Pauley Pavilion project and how it could become a model for other universities that need to renovate their facilities. The reporter then discusses the history of the project and UCLA’s goals for the renovation. The article also quotes NBBJ’s Robert Mankin, who is based in Los Angeles and was in charge of the redesign.
“I wanted to bring it up to modern standards but not lose the history. You don’t want to cover it with a new skin and make it into something people don’t recognize,” said Mankin.
