The ambitious redesign of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art continues to move forward with the county’s release of the final environmental impact report. Designed by noted architect Peter Zumthor, the most recent version of the plans has slimmed the design by about 40,000 square feet and modified the structure’s height from 85 feet to 60 feet. The construction timeline has also been shortened by 17 months. The new concrete and glass building spanning Wilshire will replace four inefficient structures with a more sustainable, state-of-the-art structure, and will include 3.5 acres of public outdoor space. Demolition and construction are slated for late 2019 with completion set for 2023. The museum will be adjacent to a stop on the Metro Purple Line Extension and next to the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. The museum is still working on raising a remaining $90 million of its $650 million proposed budget. $125 million will be funded by the county and $525 million by private donors.
