The PRISM by Marcelo Spina is an intriguing three-story structure. Located on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, the PRISM was designed as an art gallery, with exhibition space, film-viewing areas, and lecture theaters, to showcase the work of new artists.

What's most unique about PRSIM by Marcelo Spina—who is from the architectural practice Patterns—are its strips of polycarbonate resin-based facade, which wrap around the building like ribbons, offering a reflective surface during the day and a translucent one at night.
