LF Driscoll | Philadelphia Museum of Art, Core Project

Project Description

When the Philadelphia Museum of Art was preparing to execute the latest and most delicate phase of architect Frank Gehry’s Master Plan to modify and renovate the historic landmark building, the museum trusted LF Driscoll to bring the vision to life. Bringing the museum experience to the next level by opening up the floorplans on the lower two levels, the project adds over 35,828 square feet of new gallery space. It also allowed the museum to leverage the 640-foot-long Vaulted Walkway and reopen the building’s North Entrance – neither of which have been open to the public since the 1960s.
