The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just shared the draft environmental impact report for its movie museum with all kinds of in-depth details and renderings; plans call for the renovation and reuse of the 1939 May Company department store building, a piazza, and a new wing with a museum entrance, a giant glass sphere connected to the old building via pedestrian bridge, a 1,000-seat theater, and a 10,000-square-foot enclosed viewing deck. The Academy is also hoping to have a bunch of signs on and around the museum, and apparently intends to follow through on that idea to put an Oscar statue (in tasteful outline) on the May Company building’s giant golden tower at the Fairfax/Wilshire corner.
There is little tension with the acrchitect and local critics who hate the design. Architect Renzo Piano—who designed the neighboring, red-accented buildings for LACMA and has reportedly been a bit fussy on this project too. The plans (below) show the rendering of the future structure to have a Epcot Center-esque design. Piano plans on reconstructing the old “curvilinear northwest corner,” and replace the northern side of the building with windows broken up by “bands of painted concrete.” That wall would look out on a paved piazza to the north of the museum (adjacent to the huge swath of “Levitated Mass” territory), which would have seating for passers-through and for the museum cafe, and be accessible via gates from Fairfax, Sixth, and the LACMA campus. The project is projected to be complete in 2017 and should be a welcome addition to the entertainment capital of the worlds’, Miracle Mile.
