The A+D Mission.
The mission of the A+D Architecture and Design Museum in Los Angeles is to expose the general public to the importance of architecture and design in the community, to encourage innovative thinking in these disciplines, to stimulate an awareness of contemporary issues in architecture and design, whether to the general public, school children or the educated professional.

The A+D is intended to be an all inclusive information and education center for design, including architecture, interior design, landscape design, fashion design and product design.

The A+D works collaboratively with other local institutions of design as well as local design schools. A+D is planning a retail shop for books on design and accessories of high design merit.

The A+D is supported by a grant from The Getty Museum’s multi-cultural internship program.

The A+D Museum is a non-profit institution, supported by its members; corporate and foundation support; government grants and special revenues.

The general public is invited to become supporting members of the A+D and participate in all museum activities and events. A small donation of $50 will assure advance notice to the museum’s many exciting events, exhibitions, gallery talks, and access to ‘what’s new in architecture’ in LA.

Museum Hours: Monday - Saturday 10AM - 6 PM, Sunday 11AM - 5 PM.
