The Wilshire Boulevard Temple, constructed in 1929, is a City of Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Levin & Associates Architects carried out a major historic restoration and seismic upgrade of the building which included the restoration of the coffer ceiling, the murals, the exterior facade, and a major stabilization of the beautiful Rose Window.
This event will open with an overview by Brenda Levin (Levin & Associates Architects) along with members of the design and construction team on hand including Kaitlin Drisko (Levin & Associates Architects), Linnaea Dawson and Amy Green (Silverlake Conservation), Russell Kehl (Structural Focus), John Fidler (on behalf of Simpson Gumphertz and Heger), Christopher Gray, and Daniel Johnson (MATT Construction). Following the opening remarks, attendees will tour the various areas of the Temple for an up-close look at the spectacular restoration before gathering in the sanctuary for a question and answer period with members from the design and construction team.
A wine and cheese reception will follow the event, providing the opportunity to discuss the project in more depth as well as network with other members of the preservation community.
