Swiss architect Peter Zumthor holds forth with ideas for an expansion of the LACMA campus in this somewhat meta-exhibit that combines the architectural history of the museum itself with sketches of possible future designs for the grounds.

From the LACMA website:

Swiss architect Peter Zumthor has been commissioned to rethink the east campus, providing new insight into the meaning and function of an encyclopedic museum and the relationship of architecture to its site. The exhibition begins with a detailed examination of the museum's buildings within the complicated history of Hancock Park. It then focuses on Zumthor's preliminary plans for a new building to house the permanent collection, with several large models built by the architect's studio.
