Hawthorne on Zumthor

New, 3 comments

The LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne is doing a talk at LACMA this weekend, and they've just run a q&a with him before the event. Talk turned to Peter Zumthor's plans for the museum campus, with Hawthorne compared to the architect's previous work: "His LACMA scheme is also very different from the two fairly rational art museums he's designed in Europe; something about L.A. and this site along Wilshire has prompted from Zumthor a newly organic and fluid approach that for me is emblematic of some larger shifts in architecture."
