** PRIOR FIRM EXPERIENCE
Saiful Bouquet Principal, Ron Lee, while at a prior firm, led the design of the Museum of the American West, formerly known as the Gene Autry Museum. The museum is an intercultural history center dedicated to exploring and sharing the stories, experiences, and perceptions of the diverse peoples of the American West.
Located in Griffith Park, the Museum of the American West has a collection of over 500,000 pieces of art and artifacts, which includes the collection of the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, one of the largest and most significant in the United States.
The Autry Institute includes two research libraries: the Braun Research Library and the Autry Library. Exhibitions, public programs, K–12 educational services, and publications are designed to examine the contemporary human condition through the lens of the historical Western experience and explore critical issues in society.
