On September 19, 2006, George Lucas donated US$175 million to expand the film school with new facilities. This represented the largest single donation to USC and the largest to any film school in the world. The main building is a four-story, 137,000-square-foot facility housing classrooms, production labs, and administrative offices, as well as a 200-seat theater, an exhibition hall, and a café situated off a central courtyard. Completed in 2010, the second phase of the project provides another 63,000 square feet of educational and production space in four buildings. The project received the Grand Prize at the 2011 Los Angeles Architectural Awards awarded the honor by the Los Angeles Building Council (LABC) in 2011.
