Our New Building



The first major phase of our building project is complete. As we prepare to begin construction on our brand-new facility, designed by Adjaye Associates in collaboration with Cooper Robertson, expect to see activity continue on the building site this fall. Inside and out, the new home of the Studio Museum will reflect the institution’s fundamental sense of belonging within its community. We will continue to keep our neighbors safe and minimize disruption during the building process. Construction is expected to continue through 2022.

The new Studio Museum will be the first home the institution has ever occupied that will be conceived and built for its program. The building will rise on the site of the century-old commercial building adapted for the Studio Museum in the early 1980s by the pioneering architect J. Max Bond Jr. The new building will provide the custom-built and expanded facilities, enriched visitor experience, and strong architectural presence appropriate to a premier center for contemporary artists of African descent, the principal visual art institution in Harlem and a magnet for visitors from around the world.
