Jim Favaro established his practice with Steve Johnson in 1988 in Culver City, CA, with the intention to focus on areas where he believes architecture matters most: schools, libraries, civic institutions and community centers. This work includes the West Hollywood Library, the venue for our event, plus libraries for the cities of West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Manhattan Beach, as well as scores of campus plans and buildings for schools and colleges across Southern California. Jim received his Bachelor of Science in Engineering and Fine Art at Stanford University and his Masters in Architecture at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. He was recipient of the Rome Prize, one of two architects a year to receive a fellowship and residency at the American Academy in Rome. His practice in Culver City continues to focus on work dedicated to the cultivation of the public realm.
