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 347,500 sq. ft., replacing approximately 393,000 sq. ft. of existing buildings. 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 concrete and glass pavilions that support an elevated, organically shaped, and transparent main exhibition level with a floor-to-ceiling glass facade. 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 includes new outdoor landscaped plazas, public programming, educational spaces, sculpture gardens, and native and drought-tolerant vegetation integrated with the museum building, LACMA's West Campus, and existing uses of Hancock Park. The project would open up approximately 3.5 acres of new public outdoor space (2.5 acres in Hancock Park and 1 acre on the Spaulding lot). A new 260-space parking facility would be built southwest of the intersection of Ogden Drive and Wilshire Boulevard to relocate the 260 spaces currently on the Spaulding lot.
