When UCLA’s on-campus art center was damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the university saw an opportunity to renovate the structure into an architecturally significant and functionally enhanced building. The Broad Foundation provided $23.2 million for the construction of the new Eli and Edythe Broad Art Center, which houses the UCLA School of Arts and Architecture and includes classrooms, galleries, studio space, auditoriums and conference space for students and the general public. Designed by Richard Meier, the Broad Art Center is also home to a site-specific Richard Serra sculpture, “T.E.U.C.L.A.,” a 42.5-ton piece that is the artist’s first to be on permanent public view in Southern California.
