KRANNERT ART MUSEUM
Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
R+L's redesign of the Krannert Art Museum
introduces natural light, simplifies circulation, clarifies wayfinding, increases usable gallery area and offers greater programming flexibility for this 1961 modernist museum. The phased work represents the first steps in fullfilling R+L's 2010 Master Plan for the 67,600sf facility and its exterior surrounds. Phase 1 work, creating a prototypical new gallery space for KAM's African collection
, is complete and the next phases are currently in development. These spaces include redesigned lobby, entry and additional gallery spaces, which together will work to amplify KAM's place as a cultural destination and premier venue for presenting art and arts programming.
