Allen Memorial Art Museum Addition

Oberlin College, Allen Memorial Art Museum
VSBA renovation of the existing Cass Gilbert building and designed a large extension.  Particular attention was given to making the addition harmonize with Gilbert's Renaissance pavilion -- accomplished not through imitation but through matched materials used to produce a pattern and scale in contrast with yet analogous to the original building.  Program requirements included a  fine arts library, contemporary art gallery, conservation lab, sculpture studios, shops, and study areas.
