A World-Class Campus for the World’s Best Thinkers
The Berggruen Institute vision for the Scholars’ Campus is to create a leading research center that brings together the world’s top thinkers to study the most pressing issues of our time.
This contemplative campus will serve as headquarters for the Berggruen Institute research, programs, and dialogue: a space for scholars to study, collaborate, and exchange ideas with academics and thought leaders.

At the heart of our project is a desire to preserve the natural landscape in the Santa Monica Mountains, respect existing open space and trail easements, make hiking trails more accessible, and achieve fire safety goals in the area.
We are committed to preserving the vast majority of the property’s 447 acres as open space.
Our design team is led by internationally renowned architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron with L.A. visionaries Mia Lehrer of Studio MLA designing the landscape and trails concepts and Gensler serving as the lead local architect.
