Green-Roofed Holocaust Museum Unveiled in Los Angeles

The provocative undulating concrete forms are evocative of bones, creating a somewhat chilling dialogue with visitors. The architecture plays with natural light in the lobby and core of the building, then gives way to low-intensity artificial lighting the further you go into the 32,000 square foot space. As visitors go through the purposely oppressive rooms, they finish in a naturally-lit filled space as the liberation ending the war is unveiled.
