The PHI Stoa

The PHI Stoa

The PHI Stoa, a center for the preservation activities of the Packard Humanities Institute and the UCLA Film and Television Archive, was designed to store and preserve one the largest collections of film and television moving images in the world. Located on a 65-acre site in Santa Clarita, the L-shaped structure was inspired by Greek and Italian architecture, utilizing terracotta roof tiles and flooring and lightly-colored limestone walls and columns. The project includes film, digital and audio preservation laboratories, video and paper storage archives. A central plant and staff offices are connected to the existing underground nitrate film storage vaults.
