When architect Bruce Goff died in 1982, his grand and highly unusual plan to house patron Joe D. Price's art collection was still in its design phase. It was Goff's longtime colleague and former associate Bart Prince who translated Goff's designs into the $13-million, 32,100-square-foot Pavilion for Japanese Art opening Sunday at the County Museum of Art.

Architecture aficionados sometimes liken Bart Prince's soaring, layered residential designs to the work of John Lautner and Frank Lloyd Wright, but drive by one of his projects in a pleasant, tree-lined South Pasadena neighborhood, and you'd never suspect what hides behind the unassuming exterior.

To the thunderous beat of huge, barrel-shaped taiko drums, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art opened its Pavilion for Japanese Art on Sunday, finally allowing the public a good look at the provocative edifice that's been under construction beside the La Brea tar pits for two years. "The drums are an important part of Shinto festivals," Robert T. Singer, the museum's Japanese art curator, said above the roar. "They're used to summon the gods and the gods' blessings."
