The Orange County Museum of Art is building a bold new home at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California. Join Brandon Welling, partner at Morphosis, and the project team from Morphosis and Clark Construction for a virtual look at the building-in-progress and a discussion of how the team works together to make the complex forms and innovative ceramic façade a reality.
