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 Frick Collection announced a March 18th opening date for Frick Madison. Selldorf Architects collaborated with the Frick’s curatorial team and their long-time exhibition designer Stephen Saitas on this unique opportunity to view highlights from the collection chronologically by region as opposed to the customary domestic presentation style seen in the East 70th Street location.
Hauser & Wirth announced today that its new building at 542 West 22nd Street, designed by Selldorf Architects, will open on October 6. This 36,000 square foot, 5-story gallery is Hauser & Wirth’s first purpose-built, ground-up building. Selldorf Architects has collaborated with Hauser & Wirth on its spaces internationally since the founding of the gallery in 1992. As with all of Selldorf’s previous designs for Hauser & Wirth’s galleries, the goal is to create strong, well-proportioned spaces that place art at the forefront of the visitor’s experience. Here, the ground floor and second floor spaces that front the street feature 16-foot and 12-foot tall glass doors that completely fold away, opening the façade up to further engage the public with the art on view.
We are pleased to announce that Kevin Keating and Oliver Link have been made Associate Partners and William Doherty Chief Financial Officer. They will be joining the senior management team of Annabelle Selldorf, Principal, and Partners Sara Lopergolo, Julie Hausch-Fen and Lisa Green.
