The Gilder Center will include new exhibition and learning spaces with state-of-the-art technology and access to the Museum’s world-class collections. The five-story addition to the Museum is designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects with Ralph Appelbaum Associates designing the exhibition experiences, and the Reed Hilderbrand firm responsible for the landscape architecture.
