Queens Museum of Art Building Expansion
Grimshaw approached the architectural design as a series of interventions devised to take advantage of the historical assets of the pre-existing structure. A new skylight will allow natural light to filter inside the museum through a hanging glass lantern, diffusing daylight to the surrounding galleries. This feature allows visitors to get a glimpse of the sky while also maintaining a connection with nature throughout the new exhibition spaces that carefully preserve the artwork.
