In the June Director’s Series, Michael Govan, talks with Pritzker Prize–winning architect Peter Zumthor about his study of LACMA’s complex site and his vision for the encyclopedic art museum in the twenty-first century. This talk is presented in connection with the exhibition The Presence of the Past: Peter Zumthor Reconsiders LACMA, which explores the history of the museum’s campus and presents Zumthor’s concept for addressing challenges raised by the original structures and developing an architecture that, for the first time, would respond directly to the historic site.
