Mori Art Center Museum

Tokyo, Japan, 2000-2003

 

Gluckman Mayner Architects (GMA) New York, NY

 

My Role: Project Architect under design principals and a project manager from the schematic design through to the opening of the museum for design of a cable-net-shell structure entrance pavilion, 30,000 ft2  exhibition spaces, and coordination between Japanese local architects, engineers, general construction companies (Mori Building Co. Irie-Miyake Architects, Engineering Networks, and JV: Kajima & Obayashi).

 

The museum, comprised of 100,000 total square-feet, occupies the top two floors of a fifty-three-story office tower designed by Kohn Pederson Fox. The museum encompasses 35,000 square-feet of exhibition space, an observation gallery with panoramic views of Tokyo, a museum shop, restaurant cafe, administrative offices and art handling spaces. A separate structure at the base of the tower provides a distinct and iconic entrance to the museum.
