BROOKLYN MUSEUM

BROOKLYN MUSEUM

 

Featuring collections as diverse as the community, the Brooklyn is a dynamic institution that must work hard in the New York region to receive the acclaim that would be a given in any other major city. Through an expansion underground and careful planning, departments that had been scattered and intruding into public floors were removed and co-located, creating better public flow and greater support space efficiency.

By moving support functions out of more central areas the museum could open up new exhibit areas, a café and bookstore.

“Walt provided invaluable leadership over many years, as these were lengthy, complicated projects. His broad understanding of museums and the complexity of contemporary museum activities was an enormous help both during the planning, design and construction phases.”
