LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County announced Wednesday that the New York-based architectural firm Weiss/Manfredi was selected to redesign the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum.

Marion Weiss, Michael Manfredi and their team will work with NHMLAC on a multi-year process of public engagement, master planning, design and construction at the 13-acre campus. The project will encompass the world’s only active paleontological research site in a major urban area, the museum’s asphalt seeps, surrounding parkland and the George C. Page Museum building.
