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’re delighted Annabelle Selldorf has been named Design Leader of Architectural Record 2021 Women in Architecture Awards. Recognizing five women as inspiring leaders in architecture and beyond, the other honorees are visual artist Amanda Williams, New Generation Leader; Julie Bargmann (D.I.R.T.), Innovator; Deborah Berke (Yale School of Architecture and Deborah Berke Partners), Educator, and Tamarah Begay (Indigenous Design Studio + Architecture), Activist. In its eighth year, the awards recognize and promote the role of women in the architecture field across the U.S.
The National Gallery in London announced that the team led by Selldorf Architects has been selected to complete a suite of capital projects to mark the Gallery’s Bicentenary, with an initial phase to be completed in 2024. The team, comprised of Purcell, Vogt Landscape, Arup, AEA Consulting, Pentagram, Kaizen, and Kendrick Hobbs will work with the National Gallery to complete the initial phase of works to its Trafalgar Square buildings to greatly improve the ‘welcome’ it provides to the millions of visitors it receives each year.
Selldorf Architects is pleased to partner with New York City College of Technology’s Department of Architectural Technology on two initiatives as part of the firm’s ongoing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion efforts. The first is the establishment of the Selldorf Architects Scholarship, an annual award given to students with strong design and technical skills. The inaugural recipients are Rafia Amin and Ololade Owolabi, fourth year students pursuing their Bachelor of Architecture.
