The UI Stanley Museum of Art was designed as a timeless rectilinear structure, which will overlook Gibson Square Park. Its square construction will be punctuated by voids that form the building’s two outdoor terraces and three-story lightwell.
The façade will be composed of dark brick masonry and airy glass. The interior of the museum will feature white, light-filled spaces and warm wood detailing to highlight the collection.
The third-floor features two outdoor terraces, one shown here. This terrace overlooks Burlington Street and is designed for social events and the installation of outdoor art.
The UI Stanley Museum of Art lobby will welcome visitors and encourage conversation and activity. The space features an acoustic ceiling and a drop-down screen, making it perfect for events and performances.
Located next to the stairwell, the lightwell traverses all three floors of the UI Stanley Museum of Art and is open at the top. The space is designed to accommodate weather, and outdoor sculpture could be installed in the space.
The second floor will be dedicated to the presentation of art, including pieces from the collection and those on loan in temporary exhibitions. Jackson Pollock’s Mural will be on view in the DeWolf Gallery, which will be situated in the northwest corner.
