Verdugo Projects

Instructional Building & Conference Center


The new multi-story Instruction Building & Conference Center (IBCC) will be a collaborative and cross-disciplinary environment housing classrooms; studio space for music, dance, film, television, and electronic media; performance space; faculty offices; and a conference center that will accommodate events of many types and sizes.

Glendale Community College’s strong programs in the performing arts are housed in aging and insufficiently sized facilities. The IBCC, being adjacent to both the Verdugo Gym and the Auditorium, will support collaboration and sharing of resources between these facilities and their programs. The Performance Plaza builds on Plaza Vaquero to accommodate the student population with outdoor places for gathering and engaging in activities at the center of campus.
