Sir David Adjaye has created an inclusive new vision for Princeton University Art Museum’s new building. Located at the heart of the campus, the project will replace and roughly double the square footage of the existing facility. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2021 with an anticipated opening in late 2024. The Princeton University Art Museum has revealed the design for its latest intervention “embodying flexibility, openness, and connectivity to break down barriers to participation and invite entry by all”. Including stone, bronze, and glass, the building speaks to the present moment and the historic Princeton context. Selected as the project architect in September 2018, in collaboration with Cooper Robertson as the project’s executive architect, Adjaye Associates designed an extension that “embodies the Museum’s longstanding commitment to serving as a hub and a gathering place, a nexus for the arts and humanities”.
