California architecture news, north and south

Any thoughts on what Los Angeles could/will look like in 20 years?  Newsweek put the question to three architectural firms who came up with 2030 concepts for both LA and New York in a feature called The Future of Work.  The three firms that participated were Michael Maltzan Architecture, cityLAB UCLA and Gensler.

In other California architecture news, SFMOMA has announced the  firm that will do their $250 million expansion (yes, you read that right – there are still museums out there that have $250 million to expand).  Rather than choosing one of the big-name firms other cultural institutions have gone with recently, the Norwegian firm Snøhetta was selected.  You can read more about the project here, and more about Snøhetta .  (At left is the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo by Snøhetta).
