WXY, in collaboration with Heneghan Peng Architects, is coleading the Storm King Art Center’s Master Plan and are currently designing the six structures included in Phase 1. The Master Plan aims to secure Storm King, an extraordinary regional cultural facility and an international destination, for posterity.
Increased visitation over the last decade, along with expansive new programming, has placed significant demand on Storm King’s facilities and site. The Plan addresses the impacts of visitor demand by expanding parking accommodations while improving the pedestrian experience of the site, activating the entire site for visitors, and allowing Storm King to best support its art and artists.
The Plan will restore twelve acres of land in the center of the site to landscape for recreation and art, and open an additional 23 acres for art below the current visitor boundary.
