We are inviting you to submit ideas for an alternative LACMA Building for the Permanent Collections, one that would expand gallery space, rather than shrink it, one that will actually offer a home for the collections as well as all services needed to showcase and care for the collections. This idea competition is inviting you to propose ideas that show solutions that are smart, functional, aspirational and exiting. We invite you to formulate ideas in a quick charrette to show alternatives that inspire and show a way forward for a LACMA that is improved and fresh, not reduced and compromised.
