First revealed last June, Swiss architect Peter Zumthor’s amoebic reinterpretation of the east campus of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) evokes the nearby La Brea Tar Pits. LACMA is now working on feasibility studies, after which it will begin a capital campaign to pay for the project.
