The Museums of Miracle Mile

Los Angeles’s Museum Row—a six-block stretch of Wilshire Boulevard’s Miracle Mile—is home to five museums: L.A. County Museum of Natural History (NHM)/La Brea Tar Pits, L.A. County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Petersen Automotive Museum, the Craft & Folk Art Museum,and the new Academy Museum. With a number of renovation and construction projects under way, including a new subway portal, Suisman Urban Design was engaged by the museums to look at their common space and linkages along Wilshire Blvd. Through extensive interviews and comprehensive analysis, Suisman developed a new, coherent vision of Wilshire as the shared front door and public space for the museum consortium.
