Key elements of the gallery include a glass loggia that sweeps along the front that communicates with the gardens outside by providing for the viewing of sculpture with the Brown Garden and the San Gabriel Mountains as a backdrop. The building's interior space features four square and three rectangular galleries with an octagonal room at its center. The elegantly outlined, cleanly detailed, and contemplative spaces are lighted with a combination of natural and incandescent light.
While unexpected challenges put the project team to the test, the ability to work through and overcome them made for a highly satisfied client. "This was my first experience with a Zero Defects program, and I found it to be a big contributor to the success of the project," the operations director commented. "We're very pleased with the smooth turn over and the minimal number of issues demanding follow-up."
