Peter Zumthor changes LACMA plans

Alterations have been made to Peter Zumthor's Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) transformation, it was reported this week. The Swiss architect has realigned his organic form to stretch across Wilshire Boulevard after concerns were raised that his original plans would block light and rain from entering the La Brea Tar Pits which are still being studied by palaeontologists.

Zumthor has since been quoted by the New York Times as saying: “From the start, this was meant to be an organic form that can change and react. I think it’s even more beautiful now.” The concepts have also integrated new open-air courtyards in the centre of the glass cylinders that support the main structure.
