The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced that Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU) has won the competition to design its expansion in downtown Cleveland. Designed to help preserve rock and roll history, the extension includes internal and external gathering spaces for the community to learn and celebrate together. Serving as a connector to the Great Lakes Science Center, the expansion will bring more space for visitors, concerts and community events. The land can accommodate approximately 65,000 square-feet of museum expansion. The project shows the Hall’s "unwavering faith in the future of both the genre of Rock and the City of Cleveland" as the expansion aims to bring more visitors to the region, create more jobs at the Rock Hall, and stimulate the economy. “Rock and Roll—like NASA and pizza—brings us together like few other cultural phenomena at this moment when our nation needs to come together,” said Vishaan Chakrabarti, Founder and Creative Director of PAU. “We are beyond ecstatic to have been selected by the Rock Hall to design the expansion of I.M.Pei’s heart of glass. This is PAU’s stairway to heaven.” View more View full description
