The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, unveils designs for Campus Redevelopment by Steven Holl Architects

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, revealed the designs for a dramatic redevelopment of its 14-acre campus, including a unifying master plan; a 164,000-square-foot-building for 20th- and 21st-century art; and a new, 80,000-square-foot home for the Glassell School of Art, all by Steven Holl Architects. The project, beginning later this year and slated for completion in 2019, will transform not only the MFAH, but also its surrounding neighborhood, by making a major contribution to Houston’s overall efforts to improve the pedestrian experience of the city.

Building upon the Museum’s rich architectural legacy, the bold master plan will integrate the new structures into the campus, one already marked by a century’s worth of earlier buildings by William Ward Watkin, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Rafael Moneo, and a sculpture garden by Isamu Noguchi.
