AECOM creates a new gallery showcasing digital and print photography
The new Annenberg Space for Photography opened its doors this past spring with the inaugural exhibit "L8S ANG3LES," featuring images from eight LA-based photographers (including John Baldessari, Catherine Opie, Douglas Kirkland and Julius Shulman).
AECOM's interior designers worked with the philanthropic Annenberg Foundation to create an environment dedicated solely to photography - the space is the first of its kind in Los Angeles.
The design is influenced by the lexicon of 'photography: the camera, shadow and light, perspective'. The main gallery, a circular space recalling the camera lens, features seamless 7' x 14' glass screens and ultra high-definition imaging systems that show work in 4K resolution which exceeds the level offered by Blu-Ray. A movable modular system was also designed to expand the digital capacity of the main gallery space on an as-needed basis. A workshop area, reading room and full, professional kitchen are unique elements of the program that fulfill the Annenberg Foundation's goal of providing a comfortable space for the community to gather to learn and collaborate.
