New McMurty Building for Art & Art History at Stanford University, which will be officially unveiled to the public on October 6.


According to, the 100,000 square foot building will open for the 2015 fall semester, and allow students studying art history and students practicing fine arts to work together under the same roof for the first time at Stanford.

Working from the concept of interaction and collaboration, the building houses a library between two interlocking strands, resembling a floating glass box held by distinct, diagonal forms.

The Art History strand pays homage to traditional buildings across Stanford with a stucco façade, while the Art strand has a more modern appearance, including a custom zinc finish.

Upon completion, the building will also feature expanded studios, two digital media studios, a digital darkroom, a print lab, a tinker lab and a sound recording studio, as well as multi-purpose classrooms, galleries, and a 125-seat flexible presentation space.
