Petersen Automotive Museum Façade

Los Angeles, California
United States

The Petersen Automotive Museum underwent a three phase renovation led by a sculptural concept that inspires movement and transformation. The steel ribbons evoke movement, fluidity and a sense of speed. Illumination is provided with a combination of fixtures from the street level to roofs edge that meet the city's light pollution and dark sky limitations. HLB programmed 16 different “light” shows or “moods”.

HLB’s scope of work included the expansive exterior façade, associated exterior entries, and exterior gathering spaces. The stainless steel ribbons are backlit to complement the building’s new fluid organic form.
