Built by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, the new museum that bears their name is home to nearly 2,000 works that are among the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. With its innovative "veil-and-vault" concept, the 120,000-square-foot building will feature two floors of gallery space to showcase The Broad's comprehensive collections and will be the headquarters of The Broad Art Foundation's worldwide lending library. The book examines The Broad as an architectural landmark and international cultural destination, exploring the history, context and potential impact of the museum on downtown Los Angeles. The volume features eye-popping photographs from Iwan Baan that guide readers through the building's extraordinary design. It opens with an illustrated roundtable discussion, led by the celebrated architectural critic Paul Goldberger, about the museum from conception to completion. A series of construction photos then leads to an enlightening essay by Aaron Betsky that reflects upon the interactions between architect, collector and audience.Fans of architecture, design and modern art will have much to appreciate in this beautifully documented exploration of the role architecture has in shaping the museum experience from entry to exit. Published in association with The Broad.
