In the fall of 2018, Sir David Adjaye and his team at Adjaye Associates, in association with Cooper Robertson, was selected to design a fundamentally new art museum for the Princeton campus. Doing so in the heart of the historic campus provokes exceptionally complex considerations concerning aesthetics, functionality, relationships, and how the design of the new building will express the Art Museum’s purposes and ambitions.  Following a talk by the architect Sir David Adjaye, Museum Director James Steward will join Sir David in a livestreamed discussion. Cosponsored by the Department of Art & Archaeology.
