The Broad

The Broad

Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler

The Broad is a museum of contemporary art located in Downtown Los Angeles. It was designed then built in 2015 by Diller Scofidio and Renfo in collaboration with Gensler.

The building is composed of two main elements: the central concrete piece and the outside structural panelised system. Those two elements are called “the veil and the vault”

The envelope, the veil is composed by a panelized system that covers a block long distance. The panel modules are porous and allows the filtered natural light all around the interior space of the museum.

The structural panels are made out of glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC). It is a type of fiber-reinforced concrete. The material is very resistant under compression and more less heavy than basic concrete panels.
