The next incarnation of the Jazz Bakery takes another small step toward reality with news that models of the new Frank Gehry-designed building will be unveiled as part of a retrospective dedicated to the architect at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The exhibition opens to the public on Sunday.

The design renderings continue Gehry's long-held commitment to cutting-edge design with the two-story structure featuring an open facade along a zigzagging vertical line, a lobby framed by sweeping curlicues along the ceiling that recall the architect's work on Walt Disney Concert Hall and an intimate, 266-seat theater framed by similarly curved organic lines. Plans also call for a 60-seat black box theater, an interactive museum dedicated to West Coast jazz and a cafe/bar space.
