Johnson Museum of Art New Wing

The new wing at the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University recently won an American Institute of Architects New York Chapter, Honor Award. The Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art was designed by I.M. Pei in 1973.

The recent addition added more than 16,000 sf to the museum to showcase Cornell's 35,000 piece art collection and included renovations to the original five-story building. The new space includes a dramatic new sculptural glass and concrete entryway and lobby, multiple galleries, workshop studios, and a lecture hall.

Architect: Pei Cobb Freed & Partners
