The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will soon be having their first major U.S. museum designed by award-winning architects Renzo Piano and Zoltan Pali. The museum expected to be completed by 2016 will have more than 300,000 square feet revitalizing a historic building in the city. The Academy Museum design will feature the original Wilshire and Fairfax street-front facades of the 1938 Streamline Modern building, including a spherical glass facade. The Academy Museum will host more than 140,000 films, 10 million photographs and important memorabilia. The $250 million Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, designed in collaboration with Californian architect Zoltan Pali, will be built on the campus of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
