In Los Angeles, world-renowned architects Diller Scofidio and Renfro have recently been chosen to design the proposed 120,000-square-foot Broad Collection, a public museum of contemporary art. The new building will also be the headquarters for the Broad Art Foundation's worldwide lending library.

"Our heart is on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles," said Eli Broad. "This is our gift to the city that has been so good to us. We want to make great works of contemporary art accessible to the broadest public, and we can think of no better location than in the center of the contemporary art capital of the world."

The museum will be built across the street from the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Museum of Contemporary Art. The project is expected to jump start the Grand Avenue development.

Among their notable works, New York-based Diller Scofidio and Renfro have designed the renovation and expansion of Lincoln Center in New York City, the new Institute of Contemporary Art on the Boston harbor and High Line Park in lower Manhattan. Projects in progress include the Creative Arts Center at Brown University, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Archive, the Museum of Image and Sound in Rio de Janeiro and an inflatable outdoor event space at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC.
