The A + D Museum, formerly housed in downtown's landmark Bradbury Building, moved to the Westside this month. When the historic building was sold to a Hong Kong company after the death of owner Ira Yellin, the A + D had to find a new space, said Ann Videriksen, a spokeswoman for the museum.
"It's certainly going to change the kind of attendance we have," said Videriksen, adding that she hoped the new location would attract students from Otis and UCLA while retaining visitors from the Southern California Institute of Architecture downtown.
The A + D, which focuses on shows about design, architecture and urban planning, moved to 10th Street and Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica and is showing a retrospective of work by architect Ray Kappe CQ, the founder of SCI-Arc.
