Burbank Studios Burbank, CA

Warner Bros. new 800,000-square-foot complex, designed by Gehry Partners, is planned to extend the entertainment company’s current building in the Burbank Media District. Located in the city of Burbank, the area has formed a hub for major media and entertainment companies such as Warner Bros since the 1920s. The complex will be erected opposite Warner Bros headquarters on the other side of the Ventura Freeway. It will comprise two huge office buildings broken up into stepped, staggered and slanted fragments, and fronted by glass. “From the freeway, the buildings are composed as one long sculptural glass facade that creates a single identity like icebergs floating along the freeway.” Gehry hopes the project will “recapture that feeling of old Hollywood splendor” that existed during its early years.
