The renovation and seismic upgrade of the iconic Pritzker Hall Psychology Tower at UCLA, originally designed by Paul Revere Williams, addresses the growing requirements of one of the university’s largest undergraduate programs.
The renovation provides a new departmental face to the university, as well as much-needed collaboration space, classrooms and modernized dry lab research space.
“UCLA Psychology students and faculty alike are humbled by the thoughtfully designed Pritzker Hall renovation project. CO Architects together with Tangram, were able to honor the building’s history while providing the needed cutting-edge facelift. From the collaborative spaces throughout to the newage research labs, the innovative furniture and overall execution of design gives our program renewed confidence as one of the top psychology departments in the United States.”
Victoria Sork, Dean of Life Sciences
