LAMoCA Savior Eli Broad Picks List of Architects to Compete Over His New Museum


You’d think after having to bail out the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art to the tune of $30 million, and having to install his friend as the head of that museum to make sure they didn’t mess up their second chance, would have put Eli Broad off museums for a while. But like we reported a short while back, he has plans to open his own personal museum in Beverly Hills and according to The Architect’s Newspaper, he’s plugging along full steam. What’s more, it doesn’t sound like he’s planning to spare many expenses in the building department, as it’s been revealed which architects he’s invited to compete in designing his new home for art:

…the shortlist for an invited competition to design the museum includes Thom Mayne, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban, Rafael Vinoly, and Christian de Portzamparc. The architects will present schemes in mid-February. Advisors to the competition include Frank Gehry, long associated with various Broad undertakings; critic Joseph Giovannini; Joanne Heyler (Director/Chief Curator for the Broad Foundation), and Marcy Goodwin (museum planning consultant).
