After years of vagabonditude, the A+D Musuem opened its first real home last night with a
glasses convention party and silent auction. The former furniture store on Wilshire's Museum Row was renovated for the museum pro bono by Kanner Architects, Richard Meier & Partners, and Gensler. According to the Architect's Newspaper, it now has a 3,500 square foot main gallery, a 500 square foot gallery, and offices and support space. Last night's auction included pieces by architects, designers, and LAUSD fifth graders, all built from an "A+D Kit." A/N adds that future exhibits will include "Come In," "a spatial intervention at the museum featuring the work of young designers" and "Never Built," about one of our favorite topics, "unbuilt work once planned for LA."
