Los Angeles County Museum of Art
- Latest addition to Scala’s excellent Art Spaces series
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the most comprehensive art museum in western United States. Located in the center of the city, next to the world-famous La Brea Tar Pits, LACMA contains works of art from around the globe and from prehistory to the present day. The completion of the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize laureate Renzo Piano, has expanded and unified the multibuilding campus. This volume traces the museum’s history through its architecture, showing how Piano’s project, the most recent feature in its transformation, has set the stage for LACMA’s role in the 21st century.
