Groundbreaking: The Buffalo AKG Art Museum
By Queenseyes

Buffalo Rising, Nov. 22, 2019

A groundbreaking for the AK360 Campus Development and Expansion Project was held earlier today. This is a significant milestone in the quest to transition the Albright-Knox Gallery into more of a campus setting, while creating a striking new building that will act as a gathering place for visitors, while increasing the amount of gallery space to showcase sensational works of art. The building was designed by the AKs architectural partner, Shohei Shigematsu (OMA).

The new, expanded museum campus will comprise three architecturally significant buildings connected by a scenic bridge.

The new building on the north side of the campus will be named in honor of philanthropist Jeffrey Gundlach.
