Expansion plans for The Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth are, well, expanding. Architect Renzo Piano (Nasher Sculpture Center) will now create two proposals for a new wing: one on what is now the museum’s west lawn, in addition to a previously identified spot across the street at Darnell and Arch Adams. Commenters on the Star-Telegram‘s story are concerned about losing green space in the museum district (Zoom in for a quick look at green space to concrete/asphalt in the area) and obstructing the view of the Kimbell. Of course, building across the street makes it challenging – though not impossible – to integrate the museum and its addition. The museum hopes to make a choice by the end of the year. What do you think?

  • Museum of Fine Art in Houston went under the street to connect two of there buildings. They let james Turrell design the underground walkway. very cool.

    Maybe too modern for the Kimbell, but…

  • Building a new Kimbell wing on the lawn wouldn’t delete (or require) any new parking, but putting it on top of the current parking lot certainly would. That plan probably would have to include a parking garage.
