LACMA Master Plan & Exhibition Design

Director Michael Govan challenged us to develop a master plan and exhibition armature within the open 45,000 square foot space that would be flexible enough to accommodate a variety of installations, yet would not require costly reconstruction for each changeover.

Every exhibition design we undertake evolves from a partnership with museum directors and curators—we reimagine each gallery’s shape, look and feel to reflect the curatorial vision.
The design for German avant-gardist Hans Richter’s exhibition of films, photographs and drawings employed floating walls to form small viewing areas and combined projections with stationary displays. Visitors can meander organically from one area to another, gazing up at large-scale projections or down into more intimately scaled displays. Experiences shift and evolve in real time, allowing viewers to develop a personal relationship with the art.
