The LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) has the latest addition to the Los Angeles art scene. Over the past 40 years, it had become a sprawling mess with buildings scattered without connection over a few city blocks. After initially choosing Rem Koolhaas to bring the complex of buildings together, the museum board quickly changed their mind and selected Renzo Piano in 2002, who offered a more plausible design. The only new building, this Broad Contemporary Art Museum, features the skylit galleries and rooftop louvres Piano has become known for in his museums. He also connected the remaining buildings with a glass entrance pavilion. The exterior design is simple and clean; evoking qualities of both the Getty Center, 10 miles to the west, as well as the Case Study program from the 1940's and 1950's.
