Nature? It's ever-changing and always shifting. Our world experiences an uncountable number of tiny and large transitions each and every day, as leaves turn from green to gold, spiders spin intricate webs, beavers build dams, and snakes shed their skins. An institution devoted to the study and celebration of natural history and science can change, too, even one that's served a huge city for over a celebrated century.
And the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles is evolving, with the recent reveal of the new West/South Project proposal, designed by Frederick Fisher & Partners. It's the first stop in a decade-long plan that seeks to "...revitalize NHM's profile as the historic hub of Exposition Park." The renderings show a large, light-filled, three-story structure, one that will add around 485,000 additional square feet to the institution. Take a peek around the proposed building, a modern and stylish addition to the grand landmark, now.
