Philadelphia Museum of Art Breaks Ground on Core Project

May 25, 2017

The Philadelphia Museum of Art officially began the Core Project, a physical transformation and renovation of its main building led by architect Frank Gehry.  As the next phase in the implementation of the Museum's Facilities Master Plan, the Core Project will add 67,000 square feet of new public space, an additional 11,500 square feet for the display of the Museum's rich holdings of American art, and an equal amount of gallery space for the presentation of contemporary art. Combining infrastructure improvements with a reorganization of circulation at the heart of the building, the Core Project will greatly improve the experience of the Museum for its visitors. The Museum will remain open and fully operational throughout the construction period. 

Aegis Property Group has been providing project management services to the Museum since 2010. 

More information on the Core Project can be found online here. The Museum has a new installation of Frank Gehry's renderings and architectural model in gallery 154 on the first floor.
