Cleveland Museum of Art - Cleveland, OH                                               Design with Rafael Vinoly Architects PC

As a member of a large architectural design team with Rafael Viñoly Architects, efforts of concentration to the renovation and expansion of the Cleveland Museum of Art were focused upon the large new public atrium spaces and complex glass curtain wall building skin.  The museum, which houses one of the most extensive collections of art in the United States, required an 490,000 square foot addition to an existing compound which includes a 1916 beaux-arts building and Marcel Breuer’s 1971 building.  Respecting and intergrating each style into the new additions functionally and elegantly was a unique challenge.
