Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive unveil concept design for new Toyo Ito-designed building

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

Ito’s design calls for a three-storey building with an unexpectedly fluid steel exterior that curves to meet dramatic, towering windows.

The 139,000 sq ft interior will comprise a loose grid of interlocking spaces with gently curve walls that wind and bend throughout the structure. In places, the gallery walls will separate as if pulled aside like curtains, to allow passage between the varied exhibition areas.
