PRINCETON, NJ.- It’s October and time for the World Series again. One of baseball’s legends, Yogi Berra, has added space to his museum and learning center in Montclair, NJ where he uses the life lessons he learned from baseball and the New York Yankees to promote good sportsmanship, respect, integrity, social justice, and the pursuit of excellence. ikon.5 architects in Princeton, NJ, designed an addition that transformed the museum from its original opaque and solid appearance to a transparent glass box that acts as a “billboard” advertising the activities inside. The museum needed additional space to exhibit baseball memorabilia, room for collaborative teaching, and a reception hall to host a variety of functions, all done within a modest budget. The one‐room gallery is a vitrine for displaying baseball memorabilia and the mission of the museum and learning center. The transparent gallery allows the exhibits, temporary or permanent, to be on
