We’re excited to share that the Albright-Knox broke ground on its historic AK360 campus development and expansion project last week! This ambitious undertaking will more than double the number of works the museum can display at any given time, including adding state-of-the-art space for presenting special exhibitions. Designed by OMA/Shohei Shigematsu, the project will also radically enhance the visitor experience at the museum, creating more space for education, dining, and social activities, while better integrating the campus with the landscape of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Delaware Park. The museum will maintain operations at Albright-Knox Northland during construction. It will reopen in 2022 with a new name: the Buffalo AKG Art Museum.
Zubatkin has been working with the Albright-Knox on the development of the project implementation strategy and management of the design and approvals. For more details, view the Museum’s website.
