NELSON-ATKINS MUSEUM OF ART EXPANSION
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

SK Design Group served as the Civil Engineer on this $80 million expansion and renovation, which is largely submerged and features seven glass extrusions scattered in the grassy turf of a 17-acre sculpture park. This project enlarges the museum by 55 percent, to 374,000 square feet.

The Nelson-Atkins Museum is one of the most distinguished general art museums in the United States, with an especially strong Chinese art collection of landscape paintings from the Sung Dynasty. Its holdings include 13 monumental bronzes by Henry Moore and a series of Olympian-sized shuttlecocks commissioned from Claes Oldenberg and Coosje van Bruggen.
