A new slideshow video previews fresh renderings for Glendale's future Armenian American Museum, which is being designed by Alajajian Marcoosi Architects.

The approximately 30,000-square-foot museum will rise in Glendale's Central Park, replacing a grass field along Colorado Street.  The City recently approved a new master plan for the surrounding park which would replace the green space lost for the construction of the museum.
