This website celebrates the architecture of the Getty Center in Los Angeles, which opens to the public Tuesday, December 16th, 1997. The J. Paul Getty Trust is the world's largest private foundation in support of the world's artistic and cultural heritage, and the Getty Center is one of the largest privately funded architectural complexes ever designed and constructed in a single architectural campaign. These photographs are intended to supplement those already published in various magazines and books, most notably in the Getty's own Making Architecture: The Getty Center and The J. Paul Getty Museum and Its Collections.

In addition, this website attempts to demonstrate the potential of the world wide web for making available a larger body of informative images than can normally be afforded by print publishers, whatever the subject.

Posted on the web Dec. 5, 1997.                                   Any significant changes will be dated.
