Philadelphia Museum of Art, Perelman Building

The renovation and expansion of this landmark, 100,000-square- foot Art Deco building with a new 60,000-square-foot addition forms an integrated complex to house the Museum's collections of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, Costumes and Textiles, and Twentieth-Century Design, as well as its library, archives, and the majority of its administrative spaces. The design takes advantage of the existing building's well-proportioned spaces and abundant natural light to accommodate a diverse program with a variety of demands. Prior to commencement of the actual design, Gluckman Mayner Architects conducted an exhaustive pre-design and planning study to translate master plan requirements into a full building program.
