27 January, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


The Renwick Gallery, home of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s contemporary craft and decorative art program, has started a renovation that will include a high-tech redesign of its Grand Salon by Applied Minds. The interdisciplinary firm won a design competition in June 2013 to reimagine the 4,300-sq.-ft. salon, proposing the use of high-definition projectors and speakers to create an ever-changing interactive environment.

The concept presents “unlimited opportunities to transform the Grand Salon with different looks that could range from a woodland forest to an aerial tour of Washington, D.C., to a distinctive historic interior,” according to a statement on the project. The high-tech solution also will serve as a showcase for digital works by various artists.

Westlake Reed Leskosky is lead architect on the overall building refurbishment, slated for completion in 2016.
