Renzo Piano Revelation

 

Stunning images unveiled by the Pritzker Prize winning Renzo Piano Studio of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles.

The project is a reworking of the Streamline building built in 1939 to accommodate a cinematheque and exhibition space, with an entire floor devoted to an 'Oscars Experience', providing dining and special events space. 

Los Angeles is familiar turf for Renzo Piano, nestled amongst other projects in Los Angeles, the expansion buildings for the LA County Museum of Art on Wiltshire Boulevard is coming along, and the controversial 130 foot 'bubble theatre' is making rapid rapid progress.
