Detail of Peter Zumthor's model for the new LACMA building

Got a look at Peter Zumthor’s proposed design for the new LACMA building. It is all kinds of amazing. Find my write-up in ARCHITECT Magazine.

Above is one of my favorite features of the new design: the eastern portion of the building cantilevers over the La Brea Tar Pits’ biggest tar lake. In my view, this is one of L.A.’s most underrated sights. I’m glad to see the museum paying attention to it. (Photo by C-M.)
