With a horizontal layout and no back or front, every culture is given equal focus.

The LACMA Building for the Permanent Collection will be approximately 387,500 square feet. Overall, the project would result in a reduction of approximately 5,300 square feet. The project also includes a 260-space parking structure on Ogden Drive to relocate the parking spaces currently on the Spaulding Lot.

The new building would be composed of seven semi-transparent pavilions that support an elevated, organically shaped, and translucent main exhibition level. The main exhibition level would extend over Wilshire Boulevard to the Spaulding lot on the southeast corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Spaulding Avenue. The project design will open up three-and-a-half acres of new public outdoor space, including landscaped outdoor plazas, public programming and educational spaces, sculpture gardens, and native and drought-tolerant vegetation integrated with the new building and the surrounding park. Existing spaces on the Spaulding parking lot will be relocated to a new parking structure to be built on the west side of Ogden Drive, southwest of the corner of Ogden and Wilshire Boulevard.
