ASU California Center Broadway

ASU California Center Broadway, formerly the Herald Examiner Building, stands out as a cultural landmark in a modern city. The building’s design supports community gatherings and inspires entrepreneurship and innovation. There are state-of-the-art facilities, including a creative media center, virtual reality and editing studios, and special event spaces. ASU programs with a presence here include the Sidney Poitier New American Film School in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, California College of ASU, the Thunderbird School of Global Management, and ASU Local – Los Angeles.

In 2021, Arizona State University completed a $40 million preservation and restoration project on the iconic Herald Examiner building, designed by renowned architect Julia Morgan in 1913 for the headquarters of the William Randolph Hearst-owned Examiner newspaper.

Now known as ASU California Center Broadway, the nearly 86,000-square-foot, five-level building has won multiple awards, including Grand Prize at the 53rd Annual Architectural Awards from the Los Angeles Business Council and Chair Award from the Los Angeles Conservancy as part of its 2021 Preservation Awards.

ASU has two state-of-the-art facilities in downtown LA, blocks apart on Broadway and on Grand where they offer top-ranked undergraduate and graduate degree programs in film, fashion, emerging media, business and more.
