Today, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston revealed exciting expansion plans that will change the face of the cultural institution in the years to come. The $450 million project includes two new buildings that will complement the institutions two existing structures.
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.
