I couldn’t be happier for Lou Moore, a client and friend, who is the Executive Director of The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts! Lou and crew have steadfastly toiled for ten years to plan and develop the conversion of the old Beverly Hills Post Office on Little Santa Monica into a world class cultural center and architectural monument for generations of Beverly Hills residents.

The Beverly Hills Courier reports:
” Guests at the groundbreaking had the opportunity to view an exhibition showcasing architect Zoltan Pali’s award-winning design for the Annenberg. Pali, principal and founder of SPF:architects, shared with guests the model of the Annenberg as well as graphic renderings depicting various views of the site and the Goldsmith Theater, the brand new stage being built adjacent to the post office.

“We have a stunning design from Zoltan Pali,” said Wallis Annenberg Center’s Executive Director Lou Moore. “Our Board of Directors has been working very closely with Pali throughout each phase. We applaud the team’s efforts and diligence in insuring that this design meets the expectations of our donors, neighbors and the entire community.”

An exhibit featuring contents from the 1933 time capsule, discovered as preparations began for groundbreaking was also on display. The small copper box contained a fascinating collection of documents, indicative of the economic, sociopolitical, and cultural climate of the nation at that time. Local historians were on hand to talk with guests about the box and its contents.”
