Take a look back at the Education category winner from the 2013 Interiors Awards: the renovation and expansion of the Cranbrook Academy of Art's Cranbrook Art Museum by SmithGroupJJR.
In the renovated galleries of the original museum building,
SmithGroupJJR restored Eliel Saarinen’s ceiling coffer and lighting
system, replacing the lamping with LEDs.
Though the original museum galleries appear untouched, they were actually gut-renovated to implement an updated climate control system.
Vaults in the new Collections Wing display iconic and important art and objects, such as midcentury-modern furnishings.
Panels glide on a track system and hold paintings and drawings. Hanging prominently in the center is Roy Lichtenstein’s “Modular Painting with Four Panels #7” (1970).
