Sicardi GalleryEdit profile
This project, located in the heart of Houston, will accommodate the new show spaces for a growing art gallery. Sicardi Gallery, established in 1994 with a mission to facilitate a cultural dialogue between Latin America, the United States and Europe through the form of art, a medium the gallery believes to be a universal language. Sicardi Gallery hosts exhibitions of modern and contemporary work by Latin American artists living and working in many regions of the world. Most of the gallery’s exhibits are museum quality large works, paintings, installations and objects. Sicardi Gallery continues to be a source to museums around the world.
The building, currently under construction, will respond to the site’s orientation as well as to its very specific neighboring qualities. Its placement near the Menil Collection’s “campus” and across the street from the Houston Center for Photography requires careful consideration. The building’s placement site will allow for maximum use of a small urban lot. Display and work spaces are interconnected with each other providing clear circulation, but allow for privacy where needed. Natural light will enter the building indirectly and be controlled where required for specific art installations.
