The recent renovations to the Philadelphia Museum of Art constitute a major phase of Architect Frank Gehry’s master plan for the landmark building. At the heart of the “Core” project is the Williams Forum – a 40 ft tall public space for gathering and exhibitions. The structural challenges involved in this $233 million, 4-year construction project were as monumental as they were transformative. The presenters will discuss the significant structural interventions involved with the Forum space and the sequences and methods used to enable the work.
