will bruder+PARTNERS creates new urban presence with the Nevada Museum of Art 

The Nevada Museum of Art creates an architecture of dynamic urban presence in downtown Reno, Nevada. The architecture is shaped by the sun, capturing a unique identity with the geologic formations of the mythical Black Rock Desert. The carefully lapped random seam pattern of the Anthra-Zinc applied over the west facades exaggerate the form of the building with a unique tapestry of shade and shadow. Entry into the Museum is through a compressed wedge of intimately scaled walls under the raked black ceiling of the first level public spaces. The four-story skylight atrium carves through the entire section of the building and is an ever-changing chamber of form, light, and shadow. Above it, the roof terrace sculpture garden is formed by the raked edges of the building as they sweep to the sky where random crevices on the west frame the city, the sky, and distant views of the Black Rock Desert.
