Rendering for LACMA
Atelier Peter Zumthor/The Boundary

New renderings were published for LACMA's controversial building plan, reported Urbanize LA.

The $650-million project replaces the museum's two oldest buildings with a street-straddling structure designed by architect Peter Zumthor. 

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors green-lighted some county funds for the project ($117.5 million) just a couple weeks ago, with the support of actors Brad Pitt and Diane Keaton, among others.

Critics have come down hard on some earlier iterations of the design, namely the downsize of space for showing art, and the ink-spot sort of design stretching above a street. The latest design calls for a light and bright, two-story, 350,000-square-foot structure that still crosses above Wilshire Boulevard.

The project is set to begin in late 2019.
