The Annenberg Space for Photography, DMJM Architects 2009

Architecture by AECOM Design (formerly DMJM Design) The interior design is influenced by the mechanics of a camera and its lens. The central, circular digital gallery is contained within the square building to create an architectural metaphor for a convex lens. Even the ceiling features a striking, iris-like design that is reminiscent of the aperture of a lens.

 

The Space is a cultural environment where people can exchange ideas, learn and explore different topics, and is designed to serve many different functions. In addition to the print and digital galleries, the rear portion of the building features a photography reading room and a workshop area that includes a residential-style kitchen for special programs. Located at 2000 Avenue of the Stars in Cenury City.
