HED announces newest partnership with Los Angeles Community College District: The Design & Media Arts Center Project
HED is pleased to announce that we have recently been selected as the Prime Architect for the Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC) new Design and Media Arts Center (DMAC) building project!
The new DMAC building will replace the existing Sage Hall and consist of approximately 80,000 gsf of design and design-related programs brought together in a state-of-the-art facility that includes technology and media rich lab and lecture spaces. Students will have access to industry standard tools in a setting that encourages innovative practices in teaching and learning. The DMAC will consolidate the Fashion Design, Fashion Merchandising, Digital Media, Visual Communications, Sign Graphics, and Tailoring programs, along with room for potential growth in Communications Technologies.
Poised to be an innovative hub and a gateway for the campus, DMAC will sit on the campus’ most prominent corner – an excellent opportunity to showcase design labs and their creations near LA’s Fashion District, with a location along the elevated light rail line. A place for all students to congregate and be supported, DMAC will be both a welcoming and motivating force on the campus while connecting students to many facets of the College. HED is thrilled by the prospect of contributing to another project on LATTC’s campus, especially a project that will create positive impact in the global design community for decades to come!
