This timelapse video reveals The Broad Museum’s striking white “veil and vault” façade piece by piece as its extensive scaffolding finally comes down. The exterior’s interweaving white concrete trapezoids allow visitors to peer out onto Grand Avenue (and allow pedestrians to peer back in). Built to house Eli and Edythe Broad’s 2,000-work collection, the LEED Gold-certified cultural hub offers 50,000 sf of airy, column-free gallery space flooded with natural light. The space also features archives, research and study facilities, a lecture hall, a lobby and a museum shop.
