About the Museum
Situated on Los Angeles’ famous Miracle Mile, the Petersen Automotive Museum encases a red painted aluminum rainscreen whose custom corrugated profile wraps the existing structure.
The building includes several major patented Zahner technologies and methodologies which were used in the renovated building’s construction: the ZEPPS® Process for designing and manufacturing the building’s curved forms; the Angel Hair® non-directional surfacing applied to each of the stainless steel skins attached to the curved forms; and Design Assist, Zahner’s method for developing complex projects into factory-produced realities. The project also includes an ImageWall™ custom perforated metal screen which continues the architect’s design as a perforated metal graphic across the building’s parking structure.
