Wow this is really amazing! Wish I could visit LA now because this looks even better than Disney's Concert Hall. I wouldn't be surprised if it won some awards of the best building of 2015.

When the work is completed in 2017, Westfield will have spent about $1 billion on improvements since acquiring the mall in 2002, estimated Peter Lowy, co-chief executive of Westfield Corp.

The project will transform and expand the luxury property with new shops and a heavy emphasis on restaurants — largely in an outdoor setting intended to embody the Southern California lifestyle.

The height looks a little scaled down from the originals, but overall still maintains the original proposal's character

The Broad museum announced some operational nuts and bolts Wednesday — opening hours, advance ticketing, parking rates and such — for the $140-million contemporary art showcase opening Sept. 20.

But the eye-opener — and don’t blink — was the fact that visitors will have “approximately 45 seconds” to experience one of the Broad’s recent acquisitions, Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Mirrored Room — the Souls of Millions of Light Years Away.”

Netflix set to double its L.A.-area office space with move to Hollywood

The Los Gatos, Calif., company will move its SoCal operations from Beverly Hills to the center of action in Hollywood by 2017. The video streaming service signed a long-term lease at 14-story Icon Building at Sunset Bronson Studios, a deal The Times reported last month was in the works.

The marquee high-rise office tower is under constuction on the studio lot on Sunset Boulevard. Netflix is expected to occupy just over 200,000 square feet — the deal, according to the companies, is the largest office lease signed in Hollywood in terms of square feet. And it doubles its L.A.-area office space.

From my commute this morning (sorry for the crappy quality and unintentional B&W filter) -- it looks like they've finished the last of the steel panels on the Petersen. What a work of art!

Eli Broad, white knight and lightning rod, gets ready to open his own museum

The opening of the Broad museum on Sept. 20 will complete a 36-year bank shot in which founder Eli Broad bounced from one major L.A. art museum to another, with controversy at every stop, before concluding that the collection of contemporary art he has amassed with his wife, Edythe, should have a home of its own.

The 120,000-square-foot museum on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles offers free admission — a benefit made possible because Broad, 82, has promised to add an endowment of at least $200 million to the $140 million paid for construction. There may be future charges for special exhibitions, but admission to the permanent collection galleries will remain free.

The Broad's first flock of visitors in coming months will see more than 250 highlights, including works by Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jasper Johns, Cindy Sherman, Takashi Murakami and scores of other art world luminaries from the 1950s to today. The collection of about 2,000 works has cost the Broads untold additional millions.

The building has 50,000 square feet of galleries and a modest area for its business offices and a 200-capacity events and lectures space. It also enfolds a huge "vault" that will store the art that's not on display. Visitors ascending and descending by stairs or an elevator can get a glimpse inside through a picture window.

Eli Broad calls his collection 'unique in the world,' says building 'exceeded' expectations

In the skewed perspective of a longtime art writer, it felt like a historic moment. After three decades of interviewing philanthropist and art collector Eli Broad about his involvement with the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and other institutions, I was going to talk to him about the museum that he and his wife, Edythe, had built for their own collection. As I entered the lobby of a Century City high rise, stepped into a private elevator and ascended to his 360-degree-view complex on the 30th floor, I reflected on dozens of past encounters — quick conversations by telephone as well as face-to-face meetings at his home and various Westside offices.

But this was different. The subject was "more personal," as he put it. And he was up for it. Having bounced back from a series of back surgeries in time to enjoy the museum's opening festivities, Broad, 82, was more relaxed than usual. But he isn't one for small talk. When I told him that I had questions, he said: "Let's get to work."

Watts made its mark on Frank Gehry, now the architect is returning the favor

On Saturday morning, he will unveil his firm's pro-bono design for the new campus of Children's Institute Inc., an L.A.-based social services organization that provides development and clinical services to children and families dealing with poverty and violence. The estimated $35-million project will occupy the better part of a city block at 102nd Street and Compton Avenue, replacing a converted hospital building from the 1960s.

"It's simple, it's direct, it has a nice humanity about it," Gehry says of the design, which consists of boxy, two-story forms united by shining metal roofs at Gehry-esque angles.
