Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron, Christian de Portzamparc, SANAA, Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Foreign Office Architects competed to design the Broad Museum in Los Angeles, USA. In August it was reported that the winner was the project presented by the U.S. Diller Scofidio + Renfro. We present the proposal below.
Today, the proposal for Broad Museum has been done and we can observe it in its final design stage. Located adjacent to Walt Disney Concert Hall Frank Gehry’s and Museum of Contemporary Art Arata Isozaki, the new museum has become a key part of the Grand Avenue redevelopment for trying to revitalize the central line and give him the strength he has lost over time.
The heart of the design is between two long rectangular blocks. The block of the base serves as parking and the upper block contains the indoor storage of works of art, archives and office space for the Broad Art Foundation
The vault, veil, and collapses are just some of the names that have been used by architects to refer to the different areas of the overall design. A very striking front view with various forms hexagonal concrete, stands in the corner of 2nd Street and Grand Avenue, close to the Disney Hall, created the main entrance to the Broad Museum.
The veil, wrapping the gallery space on the third floor, the vault on the second floor and the lobby at the level of access, are the load bearing structures from the roof and in turn act as sunscreen for the building. The outer skin is transparent and variable thickness on all four walls, and dipped in various parts of the face that faces Grand Avenue, taking the form of recessed windows.
Notably absent in the design is intended to allow interaction between cars and foot traffic. Originally this was not the case, the design required for drivers who were headed to the parking lot to meet pedestrians on Grand Avenue accessed via a large glass, providing the draft of a meeting inevitable. However, the project is still under development and expected changes from the final result.
