The 120,000-square-foot building is located on Grand Avenue in downtown LA, across the street from Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall. Set to open 20 September 2015, The Broad will contain two floors of exhibition space for the display of contemporary art. It will also serve as the headquarters of The Broad Art Foundation's lending library. Described as a "veil and vault" concept, the design features a white exoskeleton that covers the exterior walls and roof. This wrapping – made up of 2,500 fibreglass-reinforced concrete elements – allows daylight to gently penetrate the interior without over-exposing the artwork.
