The $30 million upgrade, restoration, and expansion of the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles was completed by the team of Rios Clementi Hale Studios (architect), Harley Ellis Devereaux (executive architect/MEP), KPFF (structural engineer), and Taisei Construction (GC). Work on the Welton Becket-designed 1967 complex included an overhaul of the auditorium, lighting, and acoustics. Work also focused on expanding the back-stage area and creating a 1,350-sf downstairs lounge. The historic building's exterior—an iconic example of New Formalism—which includes a wraparound sculptural mural, was also restored.
