BIG Revamps Design for Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah

14 March, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah, has unveiled a new design plan by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) for its 15,000- sq-ft. expansion. BIG, which was awarded the project in 2011, overhauled its original scheme for a twisting timber structure after receiving criticism from the community.



The revised plan on Main Street calls for a concrete wedge that rises 46 feet at its tallest point and reflects the center’s origins as a converted garage. In a statement, BIG describes the expansion as “a rectangular volume skewed to unite the straight angles of the existing Kimball and the organic lines of the mountain slopes.”



The addition will include 9,000 square feet of museum/exhibition space, large social areas, expanded administrative offices, a Children’s Interactive Discovery Center, and a 3,000-sq.-ft. education studio. Pending City Hall approval, construction will start in 2015.
