The Andy Warhol Museum

This eight-level, 85,000-square-foot renovation is the largest single artist museum in the United States. Exhibition space comprises approximately 35,000 square feet of the building, with 10,000 square feet for archives and collection storage. The balance of the building contains an archival study center, administrative offices, an education department, a store, a cafe, and a 110-seat theater.

The renovation to this brick and terra-cotta building of 1911-17 employs a clear strategy toward orientation and circulation to enhance the museological experience. The experience is modulated by different architectural events, in particular the removal of floor structure and one column to create a cubed space at the metaphoric heart of the building. At the entry, the walls, floor, ceiling, and doors converge on the self-portrait on the opposite wall.
