Cerritos Community College

Performing Arts Center

Norwalk, California

We are working with Cerritos Community College on the design and construction of their new Performing Arts Center. The Centers’ program is articulated in three distinct building masses: a large, central element, which captures major performance venues, with flanking L-shaped bars to the west and east that house Music and Theater programs respectively. The 77,000-sf facility will provide the music and theater departments with spaces for instruction and performance, and will facilitate collaboration between the college and the surrounding community. It will serve to enhance the college’s mission to support and enrich the arts on campus, in the city of Norwalk, and the region.
