For the architect of a transformational project, the opportunity to create a new life out of an old one is like discovering an architectural fountain of youth. There is a kind of reassurance in utilizing the past to create a future, particularly when it is appropriate to substitute new imagery for old.

设计将始建于20世纪70年代的艺术博物馆、艺术和艺术史科系及艺术图书馆三合为一,剔去其钢梁后彻底重建,并将整个综合性建筑面积扩至38,000平方英尺。

细腻地面砖墙与带铝制遮阳板的大面积玻璃构成了建筑的整体立面。建筑选材以砖、锌、玻璃和金属为主,进而加强了建筑质地与周边环境人文历史的联系。
