The Los Angeles County Museum of Art hosted an event recently to discuss the future of the museum’s physical space.

Architect Peter Zumthor revealed designs for a revamped building to house the permanent collection.

The architect last discussed the museum makeover when preliminary plans and concepts were presented in a 2013 exhibit.

In a conversation with LACMA CEO Michael Govan, the architect discussed the philosophy and evolution in the thinking his thinking. A write up posted on LACMA’s site said:

Michael said, "For me, the most exciting thing is this idea of choice, that you could wander through a museum, like you could wander through a park, making your own path." Peter agreed, saying that the building allowed for the installation of shows along main routes, "curating the sequences, curating the neighborhoods or juxtapositions, and allowing for side steps."
