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
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.
