Johnson Favaro has been commissioned to redesign a comprehensive library master plan for the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), to be completed in the coming year. The master plan will include seven out of the ten libraries located across UCLA’s Westwood, CA campus which include Young Research, East Asian, Special Collections, Biomedical, Science and Engineering, Music, and Management.
