Steven Holl Architects to Design New Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU


NEW YORK, NY.- Steven Holl Architects in collaboration with BCWH Architects has won the commission for the new Institute for Contemporary Art for Virginia Commonwealth University. The building will create a new forum for the arts on campus and forge new connections to the arts community of the region. The 32,000 square-foot Institute for Contemporary Art will showcase the works of the VCU School of the Arts. The building will provide gallery spaces for traveling and school exhibits, classrooms, offices, art storage spaces and an auditorium, and accommodate a sculpture garden and a café. “Situated at one of the most traveled entrances to the city, the Institute for Contemporary Art will become the gateway and symbol of the creative energy of the city of Richmond,” said Joseph H.
