Museum of Photographic Arts

Shaping Contemporary Culture

The Museum of Photographic Arts, nestled in the heart of Balboa Park, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary as a beacon for the photography community in Southern California. In light of this anniversary, we helped MOPA realize their ambitions to engage with diverse audiences with a setting that felt fresh, contemporary and relevant. We reimagined their existing space with plans for a 10,000 sqft architectural expansion and interior design. The new plan will renew all public spaces in the museum, including the addition of a mezzanine level for galleries, a “third space” entryway to read and relax, as well as newly designed bookstore, library and entryway.
