Seeing Double

It’ll take more than mere architecture to say that Berkeley and Los Angeles are similar cities, but not for a lack of trying. Word is, New York architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro is in the process of designing a set of twin museums, each to be located in the downtown area of its respective city—Berkeley and LA.

We knew [1] that Diller Scofidio + Renfro were responsible for the new BAM/PFA (to be opened on the corner of Oxford and Center), but we had no idea that there’d be a So Cal counterpart.

This exciting undertaking is already creating a buzz about town, as Diller was in Berkeley just this past week to meet with museum staff, and an initial design concept is expected to be ready in a month. Though both of the museums will sport similar designs, we’re pretty sure that our local joint will find a way to have some flair all its own.
