Selldorf Architects was tasked with creating new architecture for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla that would give greater meaning to the whole, better connect the Museum to its spectacular coastal setting, provide significantly more gallery space, and create a more welcoming and clear entry.
This new 118,500 sf mixed-use project is located on the corner of University Place and East 12th Street in Greenwich Village. The primary urban opportunities of the site are to connect to the thriving pedestrian activity and contribute to the public’s experience of the streetscape.
We are excited to share Annabelle Selldorf’s essay contribution to NewCities with her thoughts on the field of architecture and gender equity. The essay is part of the series “The Future of Women in Cities,” published on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
We are thrilled to be working with the Swiss Institute on designing their new headquarters which will open on June 21 of this year.
The renovated 7,500 sf former bank building in the heart of the East Village offers spaces for exhibitions, projects and public programs, a library, a bookstore, and a public rooftop. The design allows for a more welcoming and flexible spaces to accommodate SI’s innovative and diverse programming.
