APMA was selected to collaborate with Snøhetta on the design of the new Rhonda and Howard Hawks Pavilion expansion and renovation of existing buildings for Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska. The new addition will be designed to house the Museum’s recently acquired works from the Phillip G. Schrager Collection of Contemporary Art. The design reorients the Museum entrance to increase visibility from the street and extends the existing atrium, creating views of surrounding nature and the Museum’s sculpture garden. The overall design seeks to interweave the landscape with the addition.

“The new gallery spaces will offer the public unprecedented access to the nationally renowned Phillip G. Schrager Collection of Contemporary Art. Schrager’s widow, Terri, donated more than 50 pieces from the collection to the museum in 2016, greatly expanding its range of 20th century artists.” — OWH
New exhibition space, a new Museum shop and updated café, and a new community room will add to the already vibrant Museum, attracting visitors from around the world. The renovation of the original 1931 building will help centralize staff offices and workspaces, creating a dynamic new work environment for the Museum’s growing team.
