Reimagine La Brea Tar Pits

Aug 26, 2019  |  7:00PM - 9:00PM

Informal presentation of the preliminary conceptual approaches to a future master plan for La Brea Tar Pits. Members of all three architectural team finalists—Dorte Mandrup; Diller Scofidio + Renfro; and Weiss/Manfredi—will be present to share their ideas.

This event is part of the competition process for the conceptual approach to a master plan for La Brea Tar Pits. The final selection of the architectural team will be made by the end of the year. The design process for the master plan will take place over the next several years and will be presented to the community at that time.

As part of our commitment to making this master planning process accessible to the public, the renderings, drawings, and models from each of the three teams will be displayed in the museum at La Brea Tar Pits from August 27 through September 15, and will be available online at TARPITS.ORG. Feedback surveys will be available at the museum and online.

In case you are unable to come to the public event or to the Tar Pits, these renderings will be on view for staff in the Natural History Museum's Times Mirror Annex from September 24-30. Staff is encouraged to provide feedback on the conceptual approaches.
