Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles earns Los Angeles Conservancy's highest honor, the 2018 Chair's Award

We are proud to share the news that Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles has been awarded Los Angeles Conservancy's highest honor, the 2018 Chair's Award, which recognizes the importance of preserving the historic places that make Los Angeles unique.

The former home of the Globe Grain & Milling Company (A-1 Globe Mills), the complex of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century industrial buildings spans more than 100,000 square feet in downtown Los Angeles’ historic Arts District. Hauser & Wirth’s project of re-generating and adaptating the site into a multi-disciplinary arts center, lead by Creative Space, Los Angeles, in consultation with Annabelle Selldorf, Selldorf Architects, prioritizes preserving the existing buildings while retaining their character and context.
Visitors are invited to discover innovative exhibitions as well as public programs and educational activities. Designed to foster community activity, the space includes a public garden, a dramatic and expansive open-air courtyard with sculpture and space for quiet contemplation and informal gathering, and permanent site-specific murals that engage the architecture of the site.
‘During a time of rapid change in the Arts District, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles exemplifies the vast potential of reusing historic places in creative ways.’ – Los Angeles Conservancy
