Sneak peek at Perkins + Will’s open-air museum in Los Angeles
POSTED 14 Dec 2018 . BY Andrew Manns
American architecture studio Perkins + Will have released renderings of Destination Crenshaw – an outdoor cultural museum set to rise in South Los Angeles.

Designed in collaboration with Studio MLA, the community-driven attraction will be both a memorial and a public art space, celebrating the distinctive and varied contributions made by African-Americans to Los Angeles over the past century.

Spanning 1.1 miles (1770 metres) between 48th and 60th streets in the city’s well-known Crenshaw district, the participative exhibit – which will also flank the soon-to-be-constructed Crenshaw/LAX Metro Line in Hyde Park, will feature a public amphitheatre as well as a number of small parks, gardens, and murals.

Speaking on the project, Los Angeles councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson said: "It will be a living celebration to remain standing for decades to come, one so stunning that everyone who visits will call their friends saying, 'You’ve got to come see this.'"

Construction on Destination Crenshaw is expected to begin in 2019. The new space is scheduled to open its doors to the public in 2020.
