Adding a Modern Feel to a 100 Year Old Building

For their first museum project in the United States, renowned international architect COOP HIMMELB(L)AU added their signature sustainable and innovative urbanism to the Akron Art Museum. Welty served as Construction Manager for this high-profile project, ensuring that the new parts of the building blended seamlessly with the old by incorporating design elements such as-  the Gallery Box interior features an extremely flexible exhibition space; the Roof Cloud, which hovers above the building, provides shade for exterior spaces and operates as a horizontal landmark for the city; and the crystal entry serves as an orientation and connection space.
