Restoration: Famed Academy Museum of Motion Pictures gets a Futuristic Facelift

The expanded vision of a restoration story in the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in LA. It features the 1930’s May Building and the futuristic dome expansion opening in 2019. Amazing that Texas “Cordova” Shellstone was the original primary choice of exterior wall cladding for this 1930’s building more than 1,400 miles from the Liberty Hill Texas quarry. Dutchman repair technique combined with new Shellstone material completed the stone restoration portion. Continental Cut Stone is honored to be part of such an awesome team in Matt Construction and Western Specialty Contractors. Congratulations to design architect: Renzo Piano with Renzo Piano building workshop, New York, NY, with contribution to concept design by studio Pali Fekete Architects. Executive Architect: Gensler, Los Angeles, CA. It is almost time for the its long awaited opening and a must see while visiting the LA area. loc hashtag#stone hashtag#restoration hashtag#architects hashtag#design hashtag#quarrying hashtag#walls
