Petersen Automotive Museum


The Petersen Automotive Museum on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles underwent a $125 million renovation in 2015, including the addition of this distinctive facade designed by the architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox, which is comprised of over 100 tons of stainless steel ribbon.   Design reviews have been mixed with some critics describing it as a “car wreck” and the “Edsel of architecture”.  What do you think?
