Latino Cultural Center

-A A +A
2003, Ricardo Legorreta and Victor Legorreta, with Halff Associates. 2600 Live Oak St.

The Legorretas’ signature vivid colors and geometric volumes highlight this cultural arts center that includes a three-hundred-seat theater, an art gallery, and a sculpture court. A six-stepped purple tower marks the corner of a landscaped court, framed on two sides by yellow- and deep-orange-colored buildings with shaded loggias and steep triangular forms. In the rotunda, the mural Orientations by Celia Alvarez Muñoz is a composition of digitally enhanced photos.
