Kimbell Art Museum

The expansion of Louis I. Kahn's 1972 masterpiece consists of a freestanding structure, placed in the park-like setting of the site, opposite the original Kahn building.  The new structure includes exhibition galleries, a lecture and performance hall, cafe, education spaces, gardens and offices.  The program includes approximately 30,000 square feet of occupied space beneath a sod roof, an equal amount of space beneath a photovoltaic glass roof, and a 150 car parking garage situated underground beneath a grove of elm trees.  Mike Morgan served as landscape architect for the project while acting as Director of Landscape Architecture with Pond & Co. and later as owner of Michael Morgan Landscape Architecture
