The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles

The MOCA is the only museum in Los Angeles devoted exclusively to contemporary art. In 1986, the celebrated Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, who had never worked on a project in the United States before,[23] completed the downtown location's sandstone building to international critical and public acclaim, marking a dramatic achievement in the contemporary art world and heralding a new cultural era in Los Angeles. Its chief exhibition spaces are under the courtyard level, lit from above by groups of pyramidal skylights.
