Herzog & de Meuron selected to design Vancouver Art Gallery’s new museum building

The new museum building will be the first project in Canada for the Pritzker Prize–winning firm. At approximately 300,000 square feet, the new Gallery will provide more than double the space of the current facility to support the museum’s collections, exhibitions, and programs, which have increased exponentially over the past decade.
