The museum is not open and you now have the opportunity to see the light that this amazing array of windows creates in this beautiful space with the most iconic pieces of art of the 20th century on display.
I urge you to visit.
When I visited the third floor on Sunday’s February 2nd, 2015 preview, SkyLit, I was struck by how even the light was. I thought it was some sort of skylight but until I saw the roof from above I understood how genius this design is.
If you zoom in on this high definition picture you will see that there are individual light columns that then throw the light onto the Museum’s ceiling.
I have seen the first exhibitions in that beautiful columnless space.
And the plexiglass cylinder which serves as the elevator makes the room have a feeling of being completely seamless.
Add some beautiful art to this and I think LA will have a new tourist hotspot.
