SO-IL wins competition for Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

Young New York-based architecture studio SO-IL has been selected by the University of California (UC Davis) to design the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at its Davis campus.

Following a $10m donation by Jan Shrem, proprietor of Clos Pegase winery in the Napa Valley, the institution will be constructing a glistening new museum with 29,000 sq ft of usable interior space and a 50,000 sq ft floating steel canopy for use a teaching base and home for art experiences.

Speaking on the selection, UC Davis Chancellor Linda P. B. Katehi said: “The design for the new museum at UC Davis turns the traditional model of museum design inside out. From its curved glass walls to its soaring canopy, it will draw people in, surprise them, and engage them. All who enter this museum will become students again.”

The sentiment was echoed by Maria Manetti Shrem, who stated: “Jan and I are extremely excited about the selection. We believe that education and the arts should be accessible to all people and that a curious and open mind should be nurtured and supported. It is with the deepest pleasure that we are able to help bring this new museum to life.”
