A PLACE TO GATHER
Since the beginning of civilization, great gathering places have been the heart and soul of great communities.
Designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studio, Microsoft Square is centrally located in the heart of L.A. LIVE. The 40,000 sq.ft. open-air plaza hosts special events, community gatherings, cultural festivals and live performances. The plaza contains over 20,000 square feet of LED signage, including six 75' towers and a 22' x 40' LED billboard. The large, flexible plaza space includes state-of-the-art, "plug-and-play" technology to accommodate broadcast events, large celebrations, festivals, outdoor concerts and other live programming.
A key configuration - the ability to close 11th Street/Chick Hearn Court (which runs between Microsoft Square and STAPLES Center) during non-peak hours - connects STAPLES Center with L.A. LIVE. This provides a pedestrian-friendly campus, as well as a prime location for red carpet arrivals for events at any of the venues. Microsoft Square is the premier location for outdoor events, flexible enough to transform from a daytime farmers market to a locale for promotional activities supporting an evening concert.
