After a length closure, UC Berkeley's Berkeley Art Museum / Pacific Film Archive finally will open in Downtown Berkeley their new home, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, replacing their 27-year-old seismic unsafe older building, a beloved brutalist structure designed by Mario Ciampi.

Here a some snapshots I took yesterday, just before it's opening to the public on 31 January, 2016.
