The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures designed by Italian starchitect Renzo Piano is to open its doors to the public in Los Angeles in 2019. The museum is dedicated to the Hollywood dream factory past, present and future. "I have built a lot of museums, but this is really special," said Piano at the New York presentation attended by director Kerry Brougher and CEO Dawn Hudson.

The 'Museum of the Oscars" in the Miracle Mile district is the first of its kind in the city that lives on the entertainment industry.  "That there should never have been a museum of cinema in LA is crazy," continued Piano, evoking the "incredible challenge" of giving a "home" to cinema, which is at once "contemporary art but also history, longevity, time".
