Institute for Contemporary Art / Holl + BCWH Architects

Steven Holl Architects just shared the news that the firm has won the commission for the new Institute for Contemporary Art for Virginia Commonwealth University with BCWH Architects.  The 32,000 square-foot building will provide gallery spaces for traveling and school exhibits, classrooms, offices, art storage spaces and an auditorium, and accommodate a sculpture garden and a café.   Joseph H. Seipel, Dean of the VCU School of the Arts, exclaimed,  ”We are honored to have Steven Holl, internationally recognized as one the most inspired and significant architects of our time. With Holl leading this endeavor, I am confident the ICA is destined to become an iconic building for VCU and the city of Richmond and will find its place as a prominent example of Steven Holl’s contributions to the history of architecture.”   As the selection process was organized to find an architect-led team, and not a specific design, we will keep you posted on the progress of the project.
