Metal Architecture Magazine featured MG McGrath’s work on the Speed Art Museum renovation project in their recent December 2017 issue.
“The existing 1927 building has a local limestone cladding so we wanted to design the expansion to complement the old, but at the same time to show the spirit of innovation of the time we live in,” says Andrija Stojic, LEED AP, director, wHY, New York City office. “The selected folded aluminum panels manufactured by Maplewood, Minn.- based MG McGrath Inc. gave us the opportunity to achieve several things: match in color, create a very subtle reflection, and create an illusion of a play between light and shadow in an equivalent way that the molding of the existing building does. In form, the horizontal moldings of the existing historic 1927 building inspired the addition’s metal panel profile. It complements the old and stands out at the same time.” – Metal Architecture
