MOCAD Picks Two NYC Firms For Renovation: Rice+Lipka Architects and James Corner Field Operations

New, 12 comments

After a nine-month search, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) has picked the architects for its building and site renovation. Both firms are based in New York. James Corner Field Operations is famous for that city's High Line park, which was created on a former industrial rail bed and became pretty much the most successful new public space in NYC this millennium. The other firm, Rice+Lipka Architects is known for projects like the Dia:Beacon, an art museum north of New York City in a town called Beacon. MOCAD is paying for the planning process of the makeover with a $100, 000 award from Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC) and with the help of the Ford Foundation. The construction phase will be helped along with a $350,000 grant from ArtPlace. [CurbedWire Inbox]
