Renovation and Remodel
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Client: Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Architect: RSP Architects; Michael Graves & Associates
Size: 190,000 SF
Minneapolis Institute of Arts included a 3-story museum addition designed by renowned architect Michael Graves. This new landmark addition added 40 percent more gallery display area to the museum.
The ground floor contains a library, print, drawings and photography collections, and a lecture room all organized around a centrally featured atrium space. The second and third floors are devoted to galleries with the inclusion of a new reception hall with barrel-vault ceiling. Extensive remodeling of the existing galleries and offices was also a part of this project scope.
