The Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation is rapidly taking shape. Designed by Studio Gang, the 230,000-square-foot building, made of in steel, glass, and “shotcrete”, reveals connections across the Museum’s rich collections, research initiatives, educational programs, and exhibition galleries.
The project will connect the Museum’s buildings, creating a continuous campus across four city blocks and embodying one of the Museum’s essential messages: all life is connected.
Museum President Ellen V. Futter said: “The Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation […] will transform both the work of our museum and the cultural landscape of New York City”.
The Gilder Center will open to the public on February 17 2023.
