Speed Art Museum Renovation and Expansion


Designed to endure time.

Press articles:





Designed by wHY Architecture in collaboration with K. Norman Berry Associates, the North Buildings adds over 60,000 SF to the 1927 Speed Art Museum, effectively doubling the previous gallery space.

Story-height cantilevering trusses are used to create the double-stacked box effect with seamless transitions between floors.
