LACMA STUDY

This study was a counter proposal to the competition entries for LACMA made by Koolhaas, Libeskind, Holl, Mayne and Nouvel. Each of these architects' proposals represents a vision about architecture, especially in relation to the role and function of the Museum within the context of the contemporary cultural condition. Our proposal was to investigate the role of the museum as a memetic parasite for the twenty-first century. We incorporated the programmatic requirements with Knot Topology to create our structure. The structure is composed of a series of programmatic spaces that grow and feed off each other create a living organism that is the museum.
