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.
On October 21st, Selldorf Architects attended the 2016 Excellence on the Waterfront Annual Honor Award Ceremony to accept an Industrial and Public Works Honor Award for the Sims Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility. Through this award program, the Waterfront Center recognize high quality design and development on the waterfront.
Selldorf Architects is truly honored to have been selected for a major expansion, upgrade, and enhancement of The Frick Collection. The firm will be working with the Frick to develop a design that addresses the institution’s pressing needs to accommodate the growth of its collections and programs, upgrade its conservation and research facilities, create new galleries, and—for the first time—allow for dedicated spaces and classrooms for the Frick’s educational programs.
