About the Building
The world’s first LEED® Gold certified art museum. The 125,000 square feet (11,600 m) building, which features 20,000 square feet (1,900 m) of gallery and exhibition space, has been certified LEED Gold. London-based Munkenbeck+Marshall Architects was appointed architect for the new building in 2002 and developed the design from initial concept to construction document phase. In summer 2004, the museum board terminated Munkenbeck+Marshall’s involvement and hired architect Kulapat Yantrasast of wHY Architecture to complete the project.
