Just to keep you updated about the new Eli Broad Museum in LA (about which I already written on a previous post.
He seems to have chosen Diller&Scofidio: those I suggested to him! Of course he has a terrific taste! It’s just unofficial and he could change his mind but I think this is quite interesting as well.
“The sources cautioned that Broad could still change his mind and pursue a design by one of the other architects, especially if a detailed cost analysis began to suggest that the Diller Scofidio plan would be more expensive to build than first thought. Broad also is waiting for approvals from city and county bodies to lease the Bunker Hill site for $1 per year for 99 years. The site is owned by the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency. Officially, in fact, Broad has said that a property in Santa Monica’s civic center is still an option as a site for the museum and that he will not make a decision on either the location or an architect until later this month, at the earliest.”
We’ll see how it’s going to end!
