The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa in Brentwood houses more than 44,000 works of art. It stands as the principal location for cultural experience and artistic expression in the Western United States. The Museum contains an extensive collection of Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities. It sits along the ridge of the Santa Monica Mountains looking over West Los Angeles.
Flannery provided aluminum trims that served as temperature control registers inside the main museum rooms. Priceless works of art require a sophisticated temperature control system. Flannery’s trims encircled the openings of the special air vents built into the museum walls.
In an addition to the air vent trims, Flannery also produced special inside corner trims that led up to the museum’s many skylights. This allowed the architect’s design of a pyramid effect below every skylight to come to life.
