Be On The Lookout For A Giant, Rainbow-Lit Pavilion At The La Brea Tar Pits This Summer

You can visit this glowing rainbow tunnel for free beginning June 28!

The La Brea Tar Pits hosts a different installation by a world-renowned architect every summer, and this year the work of Spanish-duo SelgasCano will have its moment to shine in the spotlight (or sunlight, rather.)

The 886-square-foot colorful pavilion featuring a mix of translucent plastic-like walls and crisscrossed ribbons designed by José Selgas and Lucía Cano is surely a sight for sore eyes. Its bright and airy pathways lead to the center of the massive piece where you’ll find an open space that can host everything from public programming to musical performances.

The installation’s brief visit in Los Angeles comes thanks to a collaboration with a London-based co-working space called Second Home as well as the National History Museum of LA. It’s probably no coincidence that SelgasCano is also designing Second Home’s first U.S. location which is expected to offer offices for 250 organizations in addition to housing an on-site restaurant, auditorium, and bookshop. The campus is expected to open to the public later this year in East Hollywood.

Location: 5801 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036. See it on Google maps.
When: June 28 – November 24 daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
How Much: Free!
