THEN, NOW, NEXT EVOLUTION OF AN ARCHITECTURAL ICON

Feb 19, 2017 - Aug 31, 2017

Punctuating the DAM's upcoming North Building revitalization project, Then, Now, Next: Evolution of an Architectural Icon is an exhibition on the renowned modernist building, its history, and its future. The exhibition will feature historical photos, original architectural sketches, building models, and project renderings to tell the story of the North Building’s evolution.


Tracing the building's history, Then, Now, Next showcases architect Gio Ponti’s original vision for the building, and explores how the North Building has served an expanding and diversifying community since opening its doors in 1971. It features the museum’s future plans and outlines the guiding principles for the revitalization project: Responsibly managing and caring for buildings and collections, offering a superior visitor experience, unifying the campus, and inviting the whole community to enjoy the museum and its programs.
