Dedicated to demonstrating the art and innovation of the automobile, the Petersen Automotive Museum reopened after a year-long renovation as a building that is artwork in itself. The twenty-two new galleries showcase automotive history, industry, and art and a large showroom houses samples of some of the world’s finest vehicles. SGH consulted on the new building enclosure, featuring a striking facade of wavy stainless steel ribbons over a corrugated aluminum rainscreen.
