Discover WEISS/MANFREDI’s Reimagined Dallas Museum of Art

Weiss/Manfredi is proud to announce the public presentation of our entry for the Reimagining the Dallas Museum of Art International Design Competition.

Six international design teams—David Chipperfield Architects, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Johnston Marklee, Michael Maltzan Architecture, Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, and Weiss/Manfredi—have proposed six transformations of the Dallas Museum of Art. Now on display in a special exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art and a virtual gallery, each proposal offers a vibrant new approach to Edward Larrabee Barnes and Dan Kiley’s storied museum.   

Weiss/Manfredi admires the cadence of architecture and landscape integral to the existing museum, and our reimagining activates and intensifies reciprocities—architecture and landscape, building and garden, art, and community—to construct a new tapestry for the arts. Through strategic subtraction and luminous additions, the design reinvigorates this elegant but fortified structure to signal a new transparency, both literal and philosophical, that welcomes the entire community.

You can view each proposal and provide your personal feedback at the Dallas Museum of Art, where the concepts and models are showcased in a special exhibition on-site and online.
