When the Oakland Museum of California opened its doors in 1969, it was hailed as a breakthrough in museum design. Working in close collaboration, architect Kevin Roche and landscape architect Dan Kiley created an urban masterpiece that seamlessly integrat­ed luxuriant gardens into the building’s master plan. Today, the gardens are a beloved oasis in the heart of Oakland, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy world-class sculptures in a tranquil and verdant setting.

“In terms of design and environment the Oakland Museum may be one of the most thoughtfully revolutionary structures in the world.” —Ada Louise Huxtable, New York Times architecture critic, 1969
