simon wiesenthal center, one of the largest international jewish human rights organizations worldwide, selected the yazdani studio to renovate and expand the museum of tolerance in los angeles. key components of the renovation include: exhibit spaces, two theaters, a children’s multi-functional learning center and multi-purpose rooms. the 13.5 million USD renovation was completed in the summer of 2008 and the expansion is currently under design.

recently this project was selected by interior design association (IIDA) as one of the six winners of the 36th annual interior design competition.
