The Academy Is Building a New State-of-the-Art Museum!


AMPAS has unveiled the layout (along with a lot more details) for their new museum/theater, to be located in downtown Los Angeles. The building will be dedicated to “preserving, presenting, and celebrating” film in all forms, and will contain over 290,000 square feet of state-of-the-art galleries, theaters, educational areas, special event spaces, and more. The structure was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano and contemporary architect Zoltan Pali. Have a look at a few more images and concept art after the jump.

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
