Hirshhorn Museum to be enlivened with temporary structure



by: Sharon McHugh
12/23/2009
World Architecture News

Who said you can’t wake up the dead? The Hirshhorn Museum, once described by the New York Times “as a fortress of a building that works as a museum”, is about to get a stunning new makeover that will dramatically alter its appearance. Conceived by the ever thoughtful New York architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the proposed addition consists of an inflatable structure in the form of a blue bubble that oozes of the museum’s top and side allowing it to expand on a seasonal basis.

Under the current design, the larger bubble will rise 145 feet through the building’s top enclosing a four-storey courtyard below. To be visible from all sides of the museum and at points along Washington’s historic National Mall, it will house an auditorium with up to 1,000 seats for new media offerings. From the interior, visitors will be able to view people in the galleries above through transparent areas provided in the fabric structure. The smaller bubble, located to the side, will house a public lounge with a café overlooking the mall.

The project, which is estimated to cost $5 million, is in the early conceptual stage. The museum is hopeful to open the pavilion in May 2011. However, if approvals by the Fine Arts Commission and the National Capital Planning Commission are needed, it could delay the project by a couple of years.

Not exactly a new project, but a very noteworthy and interesting temporary project. I would definitely take the train ride down to DC to see this.

It is also good to have a City/Metro thread on the US Capital here.

If this ginormous blob is dynamic and changes shape at different times of the day and will be lit at night- it will be gimazing. Don't mind going back there just to see this.

The reconstruction of the Nassif Building (aka Constitution Center) has been finished.

Any news on the planned light rail network? Has it been affected by the poor economy? I've heard about other light rail networks in the US having their future plans curtailed or shelved for the time being.

Thanks for contributing! I agree that DC is very underserved here at SSC. There's so many projects yet so little info. It's frustrating.

That's why we've got Tysons Corner. Lots of good stuff going up or approved around there.

Only two blocks north of the White House, 900 16th is among the best-located developments (and sites) in the District. Mostly leased out, but it's a small corner lot and around a third the size of a normal DC office building. Took these on my way to work:

900 16th Street NW
Space use: Office
Owner/developer: ICG/JBG
Size: 135,000 s.f.
Floors: 9
Anchor tenant: Miller & Chevalier
Website: 900 16th Street NW

Renders (from JBG's site):





Actual progress:
