The Walker Art Center Expansion project has won the 2021 AIA Architecture Award.
“The 2021 Architecture program from the American Institute of Architects celebrates the best contemporary architecture regardless of budget, size, style, or type. These stunning projects show the world the range of outstanding work architects create and highlight the many ways buildings and spaces can improve our lives……… Since they opened, the center’s new spaces have encouraged a wide range of engagements, both inside and out. More than 900,000 people flock to the campus each year, with about 250,000 venturing inside to experience exhibitions and programs. One month after its opening, the upper garden hosted 11,000 music lovers for its annual festival.”
