Pauley Pavilion Renovation Update

Feb. 6, 2007

UCLA has moved the Pauley Pavilion renovation process forward and selected an architectural firm to prepare preliminary renovation and expansion designs for the historic structure, a campus landmark for more than 40 years and the home court of 38 NCAA championship teams. The goal is to dedicate the restored Pauley Pavilion on October 14, 2010, to honor Coach John Wooden on his 100th birthday.

A campus selection committee picked HOK Sport from among 10 firms that responded to the university's request for qualifications. HOK Sport, based in Kansas City, MO, is a unit of Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum, Inc.

"HOK has designed some of the finest sports venues in the industry and is noted as being one of the best in the business," said UCLA Director of Athletics Dan Guerrero. "We are very pleased to have taken the next step in the renovation of Pauley Pavilion and eagerly await HOK's pre-design plan."

Since opening in 1965, Pauley Pavilion has served as the home court for 38 NCAA championship basketball, volleyball and gymnastics teams; hosted renowned entertainers including Frank Sinatra and Luciano Pavarotti; welcomed the world during the 1984 Olympics; hosted a 1988 presidential debate, and staged commencement ceremonies for thousands of UCLA alumni. It was made possible by the generosity of Edwin and Barbara Pauley and a group of donors who matched the Pauley family gift.

Among the many enhancements being considered are a new retractable seating system to bring spectators closer to the court, and new concession areas, restrooms and modern arena technology to enhance fan experience; new and expanded locker rooms, medical treatment and media rooms and dedicated practice facilities; a main lobby that would serve as a central entrance and celebrate UCLA's illustrious athletic tradition, and redevelopment of the area between Spaulding Field and the arena.

UCLA Athletics established an active volunteer leadership committee to assist in the design and funding of the project. Legendary former basketball Coach John Wooden has agreed to serve as the committee's honorary chairman. Members include Richard Bergman (chairman), who previously chaired the capital campaign committee for the UCLA College of Letters and Science; Matthew Pauley (vice chairman), grandson of Edwin Pauley; Ron Conway (vice chairman), a longtime Bruin supporter, and several other distinguished UCLA community leaders and former student-athletes.
