Chazen Expansion Respects Original Structure's Design

"While the UW campus may seem like a minefield of endless construction, Russell Panczenko, director of the UW's Chazen Museum of Art, has his eyes on the prize: Oct. 22, 2011. That's the grand opening of the museum's expanded facility, which will effectively double the Chazen's size." Isthmus, Jennifer A. Smith, May 13, 2010 Full story.

The design architects faced several challenges with this project: to respect the architecture of the original Harry Weese–designed building, and to unify two separate buildings into a single institution. The expansion will provide much-needed space to share more of the collections and present related programs for enrichment.
