Albright-Knox, OMA to host public meeting on expansion

On the heels of Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s announcement last week that it had raised more than $100 million for its expansion project, the gallery and architecture firm OMA will host a public meeting about the project at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center at 153 Franklin St.

Tuesday’s event is the first in a series of public meetings aimed at gathering public input on the expansion, which will be designed by OMA and its New York City-based architect Shohei Shigematsu. OMA, a global architecture firm founded by designer and architectural theorist Rem Koolhaas, won a high-profile competition against other top international firms in June to construct the gallery’s first major expansion since its sleek, Gordon Bunshaft-designed addition opened in 1962.

The expansion project, dubbed “AK360,” is expected to be completed by 2020 or 2021.
