“The Museum of Tolerance (MOT) focuses on issues of tolerance, rights and diversity. The Museum aims to confront and promote a dialogue on these issues in a hands-on interactive manner. To build upon it initial success the MOT aimed to reposition the Museum from an experiential learning center into a cultural center for the Westside of Los Angeles. Designed in two phases – the first completed phase focuses on the interior spaces of the Museum while the second phase, in progress, expands the Museum…The super-graphic wall highlights portraits of pioneers of tolerance, diversity and human rights issues. On the reverse side, quotes from other leaders of these issues are displayed. The pivoting walls allow for a variety of configurations to support the varying size of groups touring the Museum. ”
