Towards A New / Old Architecture

On view in the main gallery September 13, 2015 – January 17, 2016

Towards A New / Old Architecture is an exhibition exploring the concept of using modern architecture as the language for additions to and renovations of the rich building stock in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The exhibition will feature exemplary projects from around the state that employ a contemporary addition as the counterpoint to a beautiful historic building.

SAM is partnering with the American Institute of Architects Pennsylvania, Central Pennsylvania, and Chris Dawson Architect on this groundbreaking architectural exhibition.
