The Lynda & Stewart Resnick exhibition pavilion is a single-story, 45,000 square foot structure which is the largest purpose-built, naturally lit, open-plan museum space in the world. Designed by world-renowned architect, Renzo Piano, the pavilion is Phase II of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Transformation project.
The pavilion roof (180 feet X 240 feet) is a one-of-a-kind design that protects millions of dollars worth of art while creating another unique architectural statement in Los Angeles.
The unique design demanded hundreds of individual flashings both on the front and the back of the hockey sticks, which formed the saw tooth design. In addition, CMF designed and custom fabricated the 40 cantilever elements and stainless steel gutter system.
The roofing panel system includes Overly Precision Profile panels, .125 aluminum panels, 18 gauge galvanized metal, underlayment, dens-board, insulation and caulking.
Roof profile consists of 36,000 sq. ft. of 14 ga. Overly Precision Profile aluminum panels on lower hockey stick, 60,000 sq. ft. of .125 custom fabricated aluminum panels on upper portion and 14,000 sq. ft. of .125 aluminum cantilevered end panels.
CMF installed 3,600 lineal feet of welded stainless steel gutter. The gutter system contains tapered insulation, dens-board and Grace Ultra Vicor 30-mil underlayment. Welded gutter drains, gutter outlets and grating complete the drainage system.
Note the precise alignment of fasteners.
