The Citizens' Brigade to Save LACMA
The Citizens' Brigade to Save LACMA is opposing the catastrophic Zumthor design proposed for LACMA. We are not categorically against the construction of a new building for LACMA, or even against the demolition of the three Pereira and Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer buildings (though some attempt to adapt and expand them should be studied). The Zumthor plan will shrink LACMA and reduce its scope, instead of nourishing and growing the museum through its collections. Los Angeles culture will suffer an irreparable loss.
