Orange County Museum of Art


This proposal for the new Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) and a luxury condominium tower in a suburb of Los Angeles is mainly characterized by the big curved “reflector” sweeping down from the southern façade of the condominium to the top the museum, bringing natural light down into the museum. Light is first controlled by louvers over the permanent exhibition galleries on the third floor, then filters through translucent glass floors to reach the plaza on the ground floor.
