Project Manager/Lead Designer while at HWKN
The project stemmed from a desire by the College of Curatorial Studies and Hessel Art Museum at Bard College to improve and expand their library, administration offices, teaching spaces and archives. The design is driven by a conscience navigation of the role architecture plays within spaces for exhibiting art. Employing an understated design, the project is meant to evoke interest through light, transparency and finish articulation.
The 19,000 square foot renovation houses 6 new offices, 4 new classrooms and collaborative teaching spaces, a re-configured main library, and a new living archive for the museum. The project also required the integration and display of two new large scale art pieces by the British conceptual artist Liam Gillick, and a wall drawing by Sol Lewitt.
