The Reimagining of the Dallas Museum of Art International Design Competition has revealed its shortlisted entries. Announced by the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), the six finalists selected from a total of 154 submissions worldwide are David Chipperfield Architects, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Johnston Marklee, Michael Maltzan Architecture, Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, and Weiss/Manfredi.
The designers’ task was to redesign the museum's grounds, increase physical visibility and transparency, reveal what is happening to visitors, and make the DMA more hospitable and open to all. Additional gallery space will accommodate a collection that is expanding exponentially and hosts several masterworks which remain in storage, unseen by the public due to lack of space. The program also requires reorganizing internal space, circulation, and entrances and a comprehensive modernization framed within a thoughtful sustainability strategy.
