Philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad worked for four decades to curate an art collection worthy of its own museum. The perforated design has been dubbed the “the veil and the vault” describing the building’s two core attributes. The pin pricked exterior represents the “veil” and allows for natural light to flow into the gallery spaces. The “vault” is the museum’s concrete core, which shapes the gallery experience and protects The Broad Art Foundation’s lending library. The eclectic design was a necessity to compete with its famous neighbor, Frank Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall. But it’s safe to say the two designs marry quite well together.
