MFAH tapped Steven Holl Architects, who offices in NYC and Beijing, to reimagine the north side of the campus with pedestrian-friendly additions and underground parking. The firm will also design the Nancy and Rich Kinder Building—a 164,000-square-foot, three-story space set atop what currently serves as the museum’s parking lot. The building will feature two floors of gallery exhibition space, a theater, cafe, meeting space and a restaurant. Holy will also oversee the new 80,000-square-foot Glassell School design.
Construction on the project will start later this year and is expected to be finished by 2019.
