The Broad Art Foundation will house a traveling collection of contemporary art pieces from around the world as well as feature the vast personal collection of entrepreneur Eli Broad. The design looks to investigate a variant to the “veil” enclosure strategy. It features a semi-transparent louver system that serves to regulate a visitor’s view not only between gallery spaces, but also views of the city. The concept is reinforced by a rigorous circulation path that sometimes navigates between and around gallery spaces while other times putting the occupant back in touch with the city. The result invokes a variety of experiential atmospheres within each of the museum’s numerous galleries.
