The University of California, Berkeley, US, has unveiled its design for the new Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archives (PFA).

The new museum has been designed by New York-based architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) and will unite a repurposed former UC Berkeley printing plant at 2,120 Oxford Street with a new structure.

The new structure includes the 230-seat PFA Theater, Library and Film Study Center, special event
space, collection study area, cafe and non-public areas.

The design will add a zinc structure to the exterior of the three existing buildings.

The $100m project is scheduled to be completed in late 2015.
