AS A FAN OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART – IT HURTS TO SEE ITS TOTAL DEMOLITION

<IMAGE – LACMA as it once was> Yes, a new project by PETER ZUMTHOR will take its place, but for me, a Canadian and regular visitor, there goes a piece of my heart. My partner and I loved spending most of a day there every time we were in Los Angeles, having lunch, doing all of the galleries, the Japanese Pavilion, and occasionally the garden and nearby TAR PITS.In April, while most workers were home under shelter-in-place orders, demolition crews were tearing down three structures created by LACMA’s modernist architect, WILLIAM PEREIRAi, that were part of the original 1965 plan. Even the museum’s Bing Theater has now been reduced to rubble.It’s all gone. Farewell to an old friend. – From an article by MIMI ZEIGER, deZeen.<LACMA as it is today by MONICA NOUWENS Photography>
