Join Rios Clementi Hale Studios, (RCHS), Kilroy Realty, and de LaB for a tour of Columbia Square, a new 675,000-square-foot site at the historic CBS studio complex in Hollywood. Originally designed in 1937 by Swiss architect William Lescaze—one of the minds behind the Modernism movement—the transformation of a full city block between Sunset Boulevard and Selma Ave recently garnered an award from the California Preservation Foundation.

Join us on December 6 to tour highlights of the 4.7-acre complex’s new creative office spaces, multimedia studios, retail stores, restaurants, and green space, with Bob Hale, FAIA, partner at Rios Clemente Hale Studios. Hale has worked on notable LA architecture projects including the NBC Universal Studios Plan, The California Endowment, and Mark Taper Forum Renovation. He has also taught and lectured at USC School of Architecture, UCLA School of Architecture, and the Southern California Institute of Architecture.

We will meet in the central courtyard near NeueHouse  at 6 pm, and the tour will commence at 6:30. Attendees are invited to stay after for drinks or dinner at Paley or Sugarfish, both located at the project.

Parking is complimentary in the underground garage but we encourage attendees to use public transit. The Hollywood and Vine red line station is just a few blocks away and the 2 bus on Sunset stops in front of the project.
