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.
We are delighted to announce that Selldorf Architects has been selected as design architects for the Hispanic Society Museum & Library’s Strategic Architectural Plans, enhancing visitor experience and engaging the public. Working alongside executive architects Beyer Blinder Belle and landscape architects Reed Hilderbrand, the team will carry out a comprehensive renovation of the Main Building, designed by Charles Pratt Huntington in 1908, and will restore its galleries, as well as restore Audubon Terrace to accommodate a wide variety of public programs with the aim to integrate with the neighborhood and the city at large.
Selldorf Architects is truly honored to have been selected by Dumbarton Oaks for their campus improvement project that will enhance sustainability, K-12 educational activities, and support of the arts and humanities. Working in collaboration with landscape architect Reed Hilderbrand, the proposed Greenhouse Project will comprise two phases: the construction of a state-of-the-art energy-efficient greenhouse to support critical plant care and propagation for the historic garden designed by Beatrix Farrand, followed by the renovation of the historic greenhouse.
We are pleased to announce the December opening of Rubell Museum (formerly Rubell Family Collection) in Miami, Florida. The Selldorf Architects-designed museum will serve as a public resource with a new 100,000 square-foot facility of which 80% will be publicly accessible. Housed in a former industrial building, the design transforms the space and features 53,000-square-feet of galleries, with 65% dedicated to long-term installations and 35% to special exhibitions, all drawn from the collection.The museum will also include restaurant overlooking the courtyard, an art research library, flexible spaces for performances and special events, and a museum store.
