Chipperfield’s expansion of St. Louis Art Museum to open 29 June

David Chipperfield has designed a new 82,452 sq ft glass pavilion at the St. Louis Art Museum that expands the gallery and public space at the museum by 30% while adding parking for 300 cars and a new accessible entrance.

Constructed of polished concrete with aggregates from the local Missouri River, the East Building, as the structure is known, takes advantage of its spectacular site in Forest Park to which it is connected with a new landscape designed by the French landscape architect Michel Desvigne.

The new wing is connected by a grand staircase to the Museum’s main building, a stately neoclassical building designed by the American architect Cass Gilbert, of Woolworth fame, for the 1904 World’s Fair. The East Wing will open on 29 June with an inaugural exhibition on Post War German Art, a strength of the Museum’s holdings.
