High Museum of Art Expansion

High Museum of Art Expansion

Atlanta, GA

The Woodruff Arts Center expanded its facilities to manage the growth of the High Museum of Art, The Alliance Theater, The Atlanta Symphony and the Atlanta College of Art.

The Center turned to The Renzo Piano Building Workshop, in collaboration with Lord Aeck Sargent, to plan and design a series of new buildings on its existing Peachtree Street campus. The campus expansion includes two new Museum buildings and an Office building for the High Museum of Art; a new Sculpture Studio and Residence Hall for the Atlanta College of Art; and a new, 400-car underground parking garage and restaurant to serve the campus.

These new buildings are organized around and orient to a new plaza that is open to the Atlanta streets. The project mission was to build a village for the arts that would offer a place where people can linger and enjoy the art around them.
