On the southern perimeter of the USC's University Park campus, construction is nearly complete at Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Hall.
The new building, located at the intersection of Exposition Boulevard and Watt Way, is the home of the Iovine & Young Academy, which "offers a disruptive, multidisciplinary education where students straddle technology, business, and the arts in an effort to form a new generation of creative leaders and executives."
The three-story, 28,000-square-foot edifice is designed by Frederick Fisher and Partners. Inside the red brick structure, plans call for an approximately 10,000-square-foot maker space featuring fabrication labs, 3D printing facilities, and media labs for photo, video, and audio capture.
The academy was founded in 2013 through a $70-million donation from Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young - better known as Dr. Dre. It graduated its first class in May 2018, with students that develop apps and augmented reality hardware.
