Chipperfield tapped for Met Museum makeover

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York announced on March 11 that it has selected British architect David Chipperfield to redesign the museum’s modern and contemporary art wing and adjacent areas. The announcement followed a year-long research and selection process led by the Museum’s Board of Trustees. In making the announcement, Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the Museum said, “We based our final selection of an architect on three criteria: vision, experience, and compatibility. David Chipperfield’s global architectural experience and sensibility, along with his commitment to the collaborative aspect of creating architecture, make him him a perfect partner on this milestone project. His museum projects are brilliantly coherent, elegant, and accessible- from the Neues Museum in Berlin to Museo Jumex in Mexico City, the Saint Louis Art Museum, and The Hepwork in Wakefield, England.” The renovation and redesign will enhance gallery configuration and visitor navigation through the Southwest Wing and support a more open dialogue between the Museum and Central Park. The project will increase gallery space for the collection, double the size of the Roof Garden, and create accessible on-site storage. Nearly 50 firms in the U. S. and internationally were considered for the project.
