The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will be the world’s premier institution devoted to exploring the art and science of movies and moviemaking.


Designed by Pritzker-Prize winning architect Renzo Piano with Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Gensler, the museum site will feature a major renovation and expansion to the 1939 Streamline Moderne May Company—now the Saban Building—on Wilshire and Fairfax in Los Angeles’s Miracle Mile neighborhood.


The historic Saban Building will be paired with a soaring new spherical addition to the north, with views of the Hollywood Hills. The building’s design has been inspired by the mission of the museum itself—to turn the dream factory inside out and give visitors an unprecedented opportunity to peer behind the screen and into the creative, collaborative world of moviemaking through the lens of those who make them.
