The architect Marcelo Spina Patterns of the agency conducted the art gallery on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Titled "Prism", the building surprises and impresses with its facade made of long strips with changing shades.
Building on 3 floors, "Prism" welcomes young artists and offers visitors an exhibition space as well as projection, conference and bookstore spaces. Its facade is made of resin-based composite bands, surrounding the whole and spreading here and there to spare windows and passages. Vibrant in the sun, the material will reflect daylight. Once night falls, while the interior lights up and plays with contrast, the material will turn out to be translucent.
