Quote:
San Francisco State University has unveiled plans for a new, 242,000-square-foot performing arts center by Los Angeles–based Michael Maltzan.

Designed to express a “spirit of creativity,” the building will include a 1,200-seat theater and four smaller theaters, along with classrooms and broadcasting facilities. The project is being partly funded by a $10 million gift from the businessman Manny Mashouf and his former wife, Neda Nobari.

Construction is slated to begin in December 2012.

San Francisco State To Get a $146 Million Performing Arts Center

Stark white against the mercurial skies of San Francisco, the Mashouf Performing Arts Center will be a dramatic addition to the San Francisco State University campus. The contemporary building will house five performance spaces, including a 1,200-seat opera theater for large performances, and dozens of studios and classrooms for music, theater, dance and broadcast journalism. It was designed by Los Angeles’ Michael Maltzan Architecture, which is best known for projects as diverse as UCLA’s Hammer Museum and Skid Row Housing Trust’s New Carver Apartments.

“This building is meant to be a gateway, both physically and culturally,” says Maltzan, who hopes the center will create connections among students, faculty and the community, as well as the arts themselves. “It’s not about being isolated anymore. The center was designed so that students of different disciplines could collaborate and cross-pollinate to generate a more dynamic, creativity on campus,” says project director Peter Erni.

Situated on an awkward triangular lot at the southwestern corner of the university grounds, the 242,000-square-foot facility will be dominated by a box housing the opera theater and a long wavelike entry ramp lined with floor-to-ceiling glass.

The Mashouf Performing Arts Center will cost a whopping $146 million, all of which is being funded by state bonds and private donations. The building’s namesake, Manny Mashouf, founder of the women’s clothing brand Bebe (and an SFSU alum), donated $10 million to the university in 2005 for a new performing arts center. Construction is planned in three phases over nine years, and is set to begin in 2013.

Very cool. The bay area state schools are really raising their musical prestige with this and the Green Music Center at Sonoma State.

Pretty kick-ass.

I worked on a project that had a similar design language. It had a corridor that we rendered simple white with just those flat, but bending forms. It got value engineered to death. This should not happen with this project.

This was my favorite view

This project was cancelled, with the name of the principle donor transferred to the Mashouf Wellness Center on that site that is now open.
