Hirshhorn Museum Sculpture Garden
YUN Architecture is part of the team of architects, lead by international artist and designer Hiroshi Sugimoto, which has been tasked to revitalize the Hirshhorn Museum Sculpture Garden adjacent to the National Mall.
The project was announced to the public in a
Washington Post article on March 11, 2019. See also NEWS
The design’s early concept calls for an enhanced entrance facing the Mall, directly engaging the more than 25 million people who pass through each year. The new vision will create spaces for large-scale contemporary works and performances, as well as intimate spaces for the museum’s modern masterpieces. The initial concept design also calls for the reopening of the underground passage between museum and garden which has been closed for the last 30 years, but was an important element of architect Gordon Bunshaft’s original design.
