How LA’s Getty Center built a fire-proof fortress for priceless art

Sitting in the Santa Monica Mountains, the Getty Center which comprises a museum, research institutes, and a foundation is no stranger to wildfires. However, it’s designed in a manner that makes it impervious to fire, with materials such as travertine stone, a fire-resistant limestone, as well as cement and steel. The rooftops are crushed stone, so embers have no chance to ignite.

It’s fire proof... kind of like how the Titanic is unsinkable.
