On the Ground with Renzo Piano at the Broad Museum Opening

0515pianobldg.jpg

Dropping in on the recent start-studded opening of the LACMA‘s new Broad Contemporary Art Museum in LA was The Independent‘s Karen Wright who was more interested in telling the tale of Renzo Piano and his newest creation than rubbing elbows with the likes of Tom Cruise, Cindy Sherman and Jeff Koons. Wright is clearly not a student of James S. Russell, as she oohs and ahhs over all the specifics of the architect’s latest flashy museum. And without any of that hostility or worry that Piano has lost his edge, the piece provides a nice tour of the new building, which should be valuable until you get a chance to check it out for yourself. Plus, if anything, it’s always fun to hear Piano talk:

The building was completed in a speedy three years. One triumph during construction was the closure of a street and removal of a garage, which was replaced underground. As Piano said, “In LA, to take away a street is a miracle, to take away a garage is like destroying the Colosseum in Rome!”.
