Henry Art Gallery: Gwathmey Siegel
Rockport Publishers, 1999 - Architecture - 91 pages
The Henry Art Gallery at the University, of Washington in Seattle desperately needed transforming as it was overshadowed by the large buildings that surrounded it. The award-winning Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects, known for its restoration and addition to Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, among numerous other achievements, was commissioned to intervene. The firm was skillfully able to integrate site, circulation, building and context that beautifully reconciles the site with the rest of the campus.
