University of California, Los Angeles; Pauley Pavilion

Client: PCL Construction Services, Inc.

Location: Los Angeles, California

Landscape Architect: Melendrez Design Partners


Reviving a sports legend. Pauley Pavilion, the hallowed home of UCLA Bruins basketball, was first dedicated in 1965. Over the decades, the historic arena became an iconic fixture for sporting events and notable assemblies. When the years took their toll, UCLA took action and organized a massive (and impressive) renovation. Among other things, the renovation sought to enrich the spectator experience, starting with a magnificent sense of entry. We installed large specimen trees and site furnishings, which included benches and custom trash receptacles. The venerable arena got a sporting look and a winning future.
