The Pavilion for Japanese Art is the last structure and only major public building designed by Bruce Goff, who passed away during its construction.
The story begins in Oklahoma, years before the project broke ground at LACMA in 1985, Goff and his foremost client, collector Joe Price, had discussed building a gallery at Price’s Oklahoma estate to hold the collection of Edo-period work Price had amassed throughout the 1950s and ’60s, widely considered one of the finest in the Western world. Price’s stipulation was that the “art itself” would be the client, dictating the design of the building from the inside out, with scrolls and screens displayed as the original artists intended: under natural light, with each work hung in its own tokonoma, or alcove— quite different viewing conditions than for contemporary Western art, which often calls for large spaces and bright, uniform lighting.
