The museum's expansion is designed by David Chipperfield, an award-winning architect based in London and Berlin. Chipperfield is an internationally renowned architecture firm whose architectural accomplishments include the design of the Ansaldo "City of Cultures" in Milan; the Figge Arts Center in Davenport, Iowa; the Literature Museum, Marbach am Neckar, Germany; and the reconstruction of the Neues Museum in Berlin.
According to Chipperfield, the design of the museum's addition is intended to encourage an appreciation of the museum's extraordinary natural surroundings.
Based in Anchorage, Kumin Associates is the architect of record, charged with carrying out Chipperfield's vision.
