BBB Architects Will Revitalize the Forum Concert Venue Near Los Angeles

06 August, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell



The Madison Square Garden Company has commissioned BBB Architects to oversee the rehabilitation of the Forum concert venue in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood. BBB—which also is overseeing the transformation of Madison Square Garden—will modernize architect Charles Luckman’s 1967 design, an interpretation of the Coliseum of ancient Rome.

Planned changes include revamping the building’s interior bowl, upgrading the 40,000 square foot outdoor terrace, and adding a sky deck. The exterior will be repainted in a 1960s “California sunset red,” while a tinted glass wall will separate an expanded concession area from the arena floor.

VIP customers will have access to the thematic music-inspired Forum Club, as well as Chase Lounge, named for the venue’s new corporate partner. The revitalization aims to improve the experience for entertainers and their crews through luxurious dressing rooms and an exclusive dining space.

The Forum will reopen in January 2014 with three performances by the Eagles.
