Renzo Piano is certainly a world class architect, but he's done LA no favors. First came the awful Broad Contemporary Art Museum addition to LACMA. That was followed up by another red hulk of a building, Reznick Pavilion addition a stone throw from the Broad. And now is this proposed adaptaive reuse of the next door neighbor Streamline Moderne May Company building. LA architect Zoltan Pali, who was working with Piano on the project resigned about two weeks ago.
