PORTLAND ART MUSEUM

ABA completed a master plan for the Portland Art Museum followed by an award-winning phased renovation and expansion. Phase I restored the original museum building, introducing new visitor services, gallery improvements and climate control. Phase II converted art studios into galleries, shop, café, and program spaces, expanding the Museum by 60,000 square feet. A new 385-seat auditorium for film, lectures, and music programs was constructed below a new sculpture plaza. Phase III transformed a former Masonic Template into a 146,000-square-foot Center for Modern and Contemporary Art. The Center provides a dramatic setting for special events, administrative offices, and the museum library. These projects received awards from the American Institute of Architects Northwest and Pacific Region and Portland Chapters, as well as from the Boston Society of Architects.
