26.10.2017DCA wins Minneapolis Institute of Art commission

Following an international selection process, the trustees of the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) have chosen David Chipperfield Architects to develop a masterplan for the encyclopaedic museum. The project will see a major reconfiguration of the existing campus, improve the museum’s facilities and address issues such as the building’s relationship with the neighbouring institutions, growing visitor numbers and an expanding collection.


Mia’s impressive collection spans the art of six continents over a period of 20,000 years and is housed in a neoclassical building by McKim, Mead and White dating from 1915, with later extensions by Kenzo Tange and Michael Graves.
