Korean American Museum of Art and Cultural Center Competition, Los Angeles (1995)



Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 207 drawings
Scope and content:
This project series documents a competition entry for the Korean American Museum of Art and Cultural Centre in Los Angeles in 1995. The office identified the project number as 9501.

Headed by Bruce Kuwabara, this project proposed a three-storey building with a tall rotunda as its focal point at the corner of Olympic Boulevard and Irolo Street. The design included spaces for galleries, offices, studios, a library, an outdoor terrace that wrapped the rotunda's exterior, and a large theatre that spanned the three-storey height. Traditional Korean gardens were to make up a large part of the museum's outdoor space. This project was never built.

The project is recorded through original drawings dating from on or around 1995 that consist of sketches, presentation drawings, plans, elevations, sections, perspectives and axonometric drawings.
Reference number:


Materials in this project series were compiled from multiple accessions and some have been arranged by material type.
