Safdie Architects has designed an extension of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas, a project that it originally designed. The 200,000 square feet facility will gain extra galleries, educational facilities, event spaces, a café, and indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. A 65% increase in gallery space will allow two new galleries and extra room for temporary exhibitions and community displays. There will also be a bridge that links galleries, complete with café. A floor will be dedicated to flexible space, that can be used for community meetings, art studios, “maker” spaces and so on. A circular outdoor space will offer room for performances and community programmes.

Construction on the expansion is due to begin in 2022 and be competed by 2024. A reconfigured main lobby and courtyard, also designed by Safdie Architects, will be completed in May.
