Brenda LevinBrenda A. Levin, FAIA

President and Principal
Levin & Associates Architects
Los Angeles


Born in the New York metropolitan area and educated in graphic design at Carnegie Mellon and New York Universities and in architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Brenda A. Levin, FAIA established her architecture and urban planning firm in downtown Los Angeles in 1980. Identified with the urban revitalization pioneers in the 1980s who were able to restore life to parts of the city that nearly everyone had written off, Ms Levin gained worldwide attention for her historic preservation and adaptive re-use work on some of the city's most beloved icons, including Bradbury and Oviatt buildings, Grand Central Market, Wiltern Theater, City Hall, and Griffith Observatory. Recent projects include the design of new institutional, commercial and multi-family housing facilities, including buildings at Occidental and Scripps Colleges; galleries at the University of California, Santa Barbara and the Huntington; and housing at the Downtown Women's Center and Adams Congress Apartments. She and her firm have received many awards from the profession, business and government. A 256-page monograph presenting Brenda Levin's ideas and work and entitled Brenda Levin, Levin & Associates Architects: Los Angeles has been published by Images publishing this spring.
