School of Visual & Performing Arts

IMEG provided structural engineering for this new high school. The project includes a 233,000-sf performing arts building, classroom building, 11,000-sf of classroom modernizations, administration building, cafeteria, music building, library, gymnasium, and parking structure. 

The facility was designed by Coop Himmelb(l)au and is notable for its contemporary design in the extraordinary shapes of elements, joined harmoniously into a complete design. 

The campus’s close proximity to the downtown Los Angeles’ theater and music district makes it well suited for a comprehensive high school with a focus in dance, music, theater, and visual arts. Students will select a specific course of study within the core curriculum that focuses on the performance and visual arts.
