LA Convention Center

A convention center in the southwest portion of downtown Los Angeles. The Convention Center, designed by architect Charles Luckman, opened in 1971 and expanded in 1993 by Gruen Associates. It was originally built as a rectangle building, between Pico Boulevard and 11th Street (now Chick Hearn Ct.) on Figueroa Street. The northeast portion of the Center was demolished in 1997 to make way for the Staples Center. The Convention Center Annex of green glass and white steel frames, mainly on the south side of Pico, was designed by architect James Ingo Freed.
