The Petersen Automotive Museum delights car buffs and architectural aficionados alike

For many people, cars and architecture go hand-in-hand.

On one hand, you have those who view both as simple, utilitarian necessities; the car moves people from Point A to Point B while the building provides shelter from the elements.

On the other hand, you have those who view both as much more; specifically, the design and engineering that goes into beautiful examples of each, thereby allowing them to serve as sources of inspiration and desire.

The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles satisfies those who see both as something greater than their basic function… Something that is to be celebrated.

Located at the western end of Museum Row, the rather mundane, original museum structure was completely redone as part of a $90 million renovation in 2015 by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. Consisting of 308 metallic stainless-steel ribbons, the facade was meant to give the impression of motion, and it doesn’t disappoint!
