New renderings showing an updated design for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Los Angeles have been revealed as part of a presentation to the LA city planning commission.

The new renderings show a slightly more compact version of the original design, with more of the museum program being moved to the ground floor along Exposition Park. Other new elements appear to be a cove-like area with its own waterfall.

In addition to the museum program, the building will contain offices, educational spaces, a library, a restaurant, a museum shop and cafe, distributed over 5 floors.

The scheme is designed to be built on the site of two existing city-owned parking lots, spanning over a pedestrian walkway. The rooftop garden will be publicly accessible, topping out at a total height of 115 feet.

Construction on the project is slated to begin in January 2018, with completion sometime in 2021.
