"In June 2018 the museum announced its plan to create a new work of signature architecture on the north end of its historic campus, which will add 30,000 square feet of space for displaying special exhibitions and the museum’s world-renowned art collection. The new Gundlach Building will also incorporate several visitor amenities and will have a wraparound promenade that visually connects the interior of the building with the surrounding Frederick Law Olmsted landscape." - Building the Buffalo AKG Art Museum (online October 2021)
