Ziger/Snead chosen for Baltimore revamp

Trustees of the Baltimore Museum of Art in Maryland, US, have revealed that Ziger/Snead Architects are to work on a US$24m (£14.4m, EUR16.2m) renovation of the attraction.

It follows an extensive year-long procurement process for the scheme, which is scheduled to be completed in 2014 ahead of the museum's 100th anniversary. The renovation of Baltimore Museum of Art is to create "dynamic" new spaces for art and visitors, including enhancements to galleries containing its three main collections.

Improvements to the East Lobby, upgraded visitor facilities; improvements to infrastructure; and a new lighting system designed by Renfro Design Group are also planned. Stiles Tuttle Colwill, chair of the museum's trustees, said: "We are confident that their design will help advance the BMA's goal of creating a more welcoming environment for our visitors and a more beautiful setting for our magnificent collection."

The museum is to remain open throughout the renovation process.
