Update: Broad Museum / DS + R

Update: Broad Museum / DS + R

Back in May, when American philanthropist, Eli Broad, announced his plans to build a new museum in downtown Los Angeles, six invited top architects competed for the commission ( Rem Koolhaas, Herzog and de Meuron, Christian de Portzamparc, Ryue Nishizawa and Kazuyo Sejima, Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Foreign Office Architects). Yesterday, Broad confirmed that Diller Scofidio + Renfro (one of just two invited firms who have not been awarded the Pritzker) will design the 120,000 sqf downtown museum.

Placing the contemporary art museum on Grand Avenue will help turn the downtown area in a thriving cultural community as the site is close to Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall and Arata Isozaki’s 1986 Museum of Contemporary Art.   DS+R’s design will have to balance its proximity to these landmarks, while still creating its own identity.

The design will not be released until October, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress of this new museum.
