The Wende Museum—which is responsible for bringing a section of the Berlin Wall to L.A.'s Miracle Mile—will open its new campus in November. The museum, which features artifacts and history from Cold War-era Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, was previously housed in a Culver City office park for 12 years. It will now operate out of the iconic Armory Building in Culver City, which has been reformatted for the museum's opening. AEA worked with the Wende in 2014 on a feasibility study and business plan for the relocated museum. Our work involved identifying the space needs to meet that vision; projecting the organizational and financial implications of operating the new facility sustainably; and analyzing the Wende's future operations in the context of the developing Culver City marketplace and its local peer organizations.
