The building community in Los Angeles suffered a great loss when architect Stephen Kanner of Kanner Architects passed away last year.

But his widow, Cynthia Kanner, his architect brother-in-law Winston Chappell, and the partners and staff at Kanner Architects committed to keeping the flame alive. Tomorrow they will celebrate the completion of a project that was very dear to Stephen, the Lafayette Park Recreation Center.

Following is information from Kanner Architects:

Tomorrow the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) and the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks with the Everychild Foundation announce the opening of the $9.8 million dollar Lafayette Park Recreation Center. The 15,000 square foot eco-friendly facility, designed by the award-winning firm Kanner Architects is the City of Los Angeles’ first LEED certified building featuring brand new multipurpose classroom spaces, a technology lab and a state-of-the-art gymnasium.

The Lafayette Park Recreation Center grand opening event will be held Thursday, February 24th at 2:30pm.
