Tadao Ando to Expand Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis

03 June, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell



Japanese architect Tadao Ando is consulting on the upcoming expansion of the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, a building he designed in 2001. The St. Louis museum will convert its lower level — previously used as offices and storage — into two new galleries that will increase programmable space from 6,800 square feet to 10,400 square feet.

Initial plans call for opening a second stairway to the lower-level galleries, where light and spatial dynamics will reflect the building’s original architectural style. “Our vision is to provide contemplative, unmediated access to outstanding art alongside imaginative programs that inspire visitors to think differently about art and its relationship to daily life,” Pulitzer director Kristina Van Dyke said in a statement.

Construction will start in late August and wrap up in May 2015.
