Gateway Art Tower

Hayden Avenue
Eric Owen Moss Architects designed a multi-media tower in culver city to display art inside and on its digital screen fa├žade. The new tower is currently under construction at the entry point to the re-developed zone of culver city, california. Inside the tower will host art displays for local residents and workers in the area. the exterior will communicate about the area on its outdoor screens, as well as showing various graphic presentations. Five circular staircases connect the levels, which are each staggered to correspond to different directions. Each level will also boast a projection screen oriented to it levels direction. at its base the 72 foot high tower will feature an open-air amphitheatre, located below grade.
The art tower is an information tower, constructed at the corner of hayden avenue and national boulevard. that intersection is the primary entry point into the re-developed zone of culver city.
Conceptually, the tower has both introverted and extroverted planning ives. internal to the burgeoning site area of new media companies, graphic designers, and general office tenants, the tower will symbolize the advent of this important new urban development, provide a changing art display for local viewing, and offer a variety of graphic content and data on its five screens concerning coming events and current achievements of the tenants who occupy that part of the city.
Externally, the tower makes displays culturally significant content and local event information, along with art and graphic presentations of all sorts available to in-car audiences who pass the site area, traveling on a number of local thoroughfares in the culver city-west los angeles area.
