Model of the $33.5 million Los Angeles Music Center designed by Welton Becket and Associates, architects and engineers. The 3250-seat Dorothy Chandler Pavilion opened December 6, 1964, with the other two theaters awaiting construction. The Mark Taper Forum (center), a 750-seat circular theater for recitals and experimental theater, and the Center Theater (right), a 2100-seat auditorium for legitimate theater, will complete the Center, which rises from an already-completed 7-1/2 acre landscaped mall, beneath which are four levels of parking for 2000 automobiles.
