Selldorf Architects is designing a major new expansion and enhancement of the Frick Collection. Honoring the architectural legacy and unique character of the Frick, the plan provides unprecedented access to the original 1914 home of Henry Clay Frick, preserves the intimate visitor experience and beloved galleries for which the Frick is known, and restores the 70th Street Garden.
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.
The National Gallery in London has released updated designs for the NG200 project. The design has continued to evolve to create a more welcoming and inclusive experience for visitors with a newly imagined public realm including a new “square within a square” in front of the Sainsbury Wing, along with bringing more light into the building with updated glazing and double height spaces. The project also includes updates to the Research Centre making it more visible and accessible. Selldorf is working on the project alongside Purcell, Vogt Landscape, Arup, Pentagram, L’Observatoire, Kaizen and Kendrick Hobbs.
Following a rigorous selection process the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) announced today that it has selected Selldorf Architects, Diamond Schmitt and Two Row Architect for the 50,000sf expansion to house their growing collection of global modern and contemporary art. The proposed site will connect to the 2008 Frank Gehry AGO expansion.
The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) in La Jolla reopens to the public on April 9th, after a $105 million renovation and expansion by Selldorf Architects. The expanded Museum increases the gallery space four-fold, with two levels of light-filled galleries, a public Art Park, and new seaside terraces offering dramatic views of the Pacific Coast.
