Designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects, Teel Family Pavilion, Crocker Art Museum is located in Sacremento, United States. One of the series of historic structures that make up the Crocker Art Museum remains one of the first purpose built art museum buildings in the United States, therefore it was highly necessary that GSAA’s design was both sensitive to the surviving form and applicable to a 21st century demands. Internally, the exhibition spaces merge seamlessly into the original Art Gallery building, enabling a continuous circulation from the new to old structures.
GSAA’s addition places a heavy focus on the education of young minds and nurturing of fresh talent. The extension is comprised of expanded educational and art studio space, a teacher resource centre, an area for participatory arts programming for children and adults, an expanded library, a new student exhibition space, teaching galleries and extended temporary exhibition space.
